Lunar eclipse

It was pretty cloudy last night so I didn't get a lot of shots (well, not many that worked any way). At first, all I could see was a bit of moon poking out through the clouds. Later on I got a few shots of the red moon but they're pretty dark 'cos it wasn't throwing off much light. These were 10, or maybe 15, second exposures. I've cropped one to get a better view. When I got home it was almost back to normal but I haven't looked at those shots yet so don't know if any worked out.

I can't believe I missed it. Set the alarm for pm setting instead of am.
grr..

but glad you got some great photos. It looks cool.

I read that at Shirl's. Sorry, but I had to laugh.
I would've like the pics to be brighter - but this is the way they turned out. Not enough light from the moon itself I supose.

Diane said...

these were with the new cam too right?

Julie said...

the new lens, yeah.

Shirl said...

dummy me overslept. Grrr.

Julie said...

It was kind of an unfriendly time for you guys. Just perfect here - 7pm onwards.
Well, it would have been perfect without the cloud cover!

Shirl said...

and we didn't have the cloud cover. Waaah
