Re: Blood Moon

Yes, Very nice capture especially the color. I don't believe the eclipse was visible this far north. But it was overcast and I slept right thru that time period anyway. I'm glad the skies were clear over Oklahoma.

For me, it rained the while night.... I had a 650mm cat on tracking mount and time lapse rig ready to go... ( Insert Sad Trombones )

Glad someone got a nice view of it. I think the last 10 of them have been terribly cloudy weather.

That is last one which was any good for me, it was a decade ago.   This was shot as 2mp stills from a Canon HV20 using the integrated zoom lens ( terrible for this sort of work )        I didn't have the proper gear to do it justice.   Not that I do, I'm sure never to see another eclipse as long as I live.

Re: Blood Moon

Sorry all your preparation was for naught, Bob. Hopefully you will have clear skies next time.

Thanks,

You got an interesting, moody looking shot anyway.

It rose quickly into the bank of cloud as I struggled with tripod droop

Re: Blood Moon

Here's my attempt with the K01 and 170-500. The weather was beautifully clear here, but I really wanted to figure out some interesting foreground element to get into the frame and couldn't make it work.  I was hoping to get it cresting over the mountains but the eclipse was about an hour too late to match up.
