My take on the Blood moon

Recommended Posts

The weather forecast was showing clouds all night long but I've been fooled before so I set my alarm at 4am. When I woke up and looked out the window I was pleasantly surprised to see a nice moon and no clouds in sight. I quickly went outside got my gear ready and started shooting. I've been very very lucky to have the clouds rolling passed just below the moon for quite a while. I managed to capture the full eclipsed moon before the clouds began to cover it.

So here's my captures. Canon 600D and TS65 quad, Canon 700D and samyamg 135mm f2 lens on my eq3 pro mount.LRM_EXPORT_15873842102991_20190121_214301428.thumb.jpeg.25e23acbb3aff9dc697c3d767c5d5271.jpegLRM_EXPORT_15569413469055_20190121_213757000.thumb.jpeg.1bcdbe961561879ae3fac29ef208cd93.jpegLRM_EXPORT_14528581198492_20190121_212035483.thumb.jpeg.c1b50888c5ecce42111e2cde89a6af8b.jpegLRM_EXPORT_15279312700455_20190121_213306899.thumb.jpeg.b786ea17ca516d0fa9abfacb9ed7921c.jpegLRM_EXPORT_17750164141688_20190121_221417750.thumb.jpg.56ecd83d4688083fd4e8bd60d527c411.jpgLRM_EXPORT_15006991280381_20190121_212834577.thumb.jpeg.45e0d69cd6c6359e6ae66e3edda24387.jpeg

You did well to get the red colour so early on the the eclipse.  Great images.

Thanks Carole. I was quite surprised myself to be honest. It's my first ever moon eclipse but I've seen photos taken by other people on different occasions. I'm really happy that I managed to capture it 🙂

I particularly like the red moon pic showing lots of background stars as well.

I love that one. I wanted one very bad. I stretched the starfield a bit to make them stand out and kept the background quite dark to avoid stretching the noise too.

What he said. That's a fab image, the others aren't too shabby either. Well done.
