Penumbral eclipse

Thanks, Andrew!

Yes, looking at the diagram for the event in the BAA Handbook, the Moon was more or less fully within the penumbra and the limb very close to the umbra at greatest eclipse.

Regards, Mike.

      What a nice way to wake! The other morning I got up at dawn to capture this peaceful pairing of the waning crescent moon and Venus. The only music you hear are the beautiful sounds of Nature.

      Well here it is. Am almost too embarassed to put it up but I won't learn anything if I don't I suppose. The original images were captured on a 2MP web cam using SnapCap. The 1000 frame avi was then processed in Registax using best 85%. Finished off in Photoshop. Be gentle with me guys.
