EquipmentTele Vue NP-101 on a home built alt-az mount Canon 30D @ prime focus
DescriptionPhoto of the moon just after naked eye determination of the moon entering totality (full eclipse). The darkest and most red eclipse I've seen in the last 20 odd years. It will be interesting to learn if other east coast observers have similar comments and if they differ from the west coast views.
LocationSan Luis Obismo
EquipmentPanasonic Lumix DMC-Fz5 no mount (though stabilized with a pile of gravel) f 2.8 exp 1/1.6
DescriptionLunar eclipse over San Luis Obismo taken with no mount at about 10x zoom. Rather tricky, given the makeshift stabilization of gravel and small pebbles (and many takes) to get just the right shot.
