DescriptionOne of the benefits of travelling to Maui for the transit of Venus is that it also afforded a superb view of the partial lunar eclipse of 2012-06-04, with the moon near the meridian, with the opprotunity to capture some images and make some crater timings for Roger Sinnot at Sky & Telescope Although this wasn't a particularly deep eclipse, this composite image showing the position of the moon every 20minutes clearly shows the outline of Earth's shadow, the umbra, on the surface of the moon.

EquipmentCanon Rebel XT 300mm Lens f/7.1 1/640 Sec ISO-400
DescriptionAlmost missed this eclipse due to the lack of hype (for a change) in the press about it. With all the photos pouring in of tomorrow's transit of Venus, this picture will probably get lost in the shuffle anyway. Oh, well...

DescriptionI was supposed to just use my DSLR to capture the lunar eclipse tonight, but upon seeing the eastern horizon clearing up, I immediately rushed home just in time to take this shot of the partial eclipse during its maximum.
