I tried my hand at some more astrophotography during the lunar eclipse we had just over a week ago. I’d seen some pictures of the moon in various stages of being eclipsed all in the same picture. Well I started out good until I figured out that the moon was going to go behind some trees. I was taking pictures every ten minutes, and had to move after three exposures. Took a couple more and had to move again, because of the trees. Long story short I’ve got a couple of strings of eclipse exposures and a few others when I was just playing around.
The eclipse was a lot of fun to watch and really quite wonderful. Being out in the woods has it’s advantages and it’s disadvantages. There was absolutely no light pollution. The evening was cool and otherwise very enjoyable. The downside there were trees everywhere.
