Right because Last week I was able to see a partial lunar eclipse. You can see it in my thread but anyway. We got it first, north America. That is OUR moon, what are they doing with it?

To get you in the mood I went through some old (film) photos that I had, and scanned one in of a lunar eclipse from back in 1993. The one that is 10 hours from now should be just as red.

Nice shot.

Should be quite red here in Western Australia due to the ash cloud that's lingering overhead.

I'm planning on getting some shots myself.

Was unusually red as it set in melbourne this morning. Should be excellent tomorrow (if there's no cloud).
As for the photos, dont forget to bracket widely. That shot was Fuji 400, an 8 inch telescope at f6.3 and some unknown numbers of seconds. My notes say I tried everything from 10 seconds to 2 minutes. A few of them worked ok.

Thanks for the tip.

I only have a 50mm lens but should still get some nice shots.

Good Morning Reesie and Folks,

Ok we are back and totally knackered and pretty stoked with tonight.
I knew youd be super keen for an update so here i am mate.


Was an excellent adventure to say the least!

We have some shots (100 150 odd) but the clouds came in just ( literally just ) as it went total!! ARRGHH!! I could just die!!! But we will see what I can pull from the telescope images after i sleep and have fresh eyes! It was super red and really nice kinda muted orangey. Its still going now and was way longer than i expected thanks to my astro club telling me it was only 100mins! (my bad I didnt even worry about double checking.) If it were a clear night we would still be there now.

When it went total where we were was amzing the crikets and frogs even stopped and total silence and darkness. It was an eerie moment for sure. More on that stuff later.

Anyway I will be back later to share what i can.

Have the best day
themuse
