EquipmentTamron 300mm f/2.8 lens on Pentax *ist-DS, on Amvona 858B tripod with Bogen 3047 head.
DescriptionThe moon nears totality as seen from downtown Pasadena, California. The cupola of Pasadena City Hall is seen in the foreground. Regulus appears at upper left. I was fortunate to see the eclipse at all, as it had been raining intermittently all day. Scattered clouds during totality made the moon invisible at times.
