We just had a partial solar eclipse (48%) and I did consider shooting it... but figured out I needed a telescope and a 500mm lens to make it really worthwhile - so instead did the camera obscura thing with my 4-year old... so he could look at it...

I shot this sequence last August, but I might try again this time with an extender so that I get a better resolution as my longest lens goes only to 200mm. Unfortunately this picture below has been downloaded only four times. Maybe it has bad keywording. There are tons of images here that have nothing to do with an eclipse. Maybe that turns our buyers off. I dunno.

Hey up rob,thanks for the interesting post.


Some years ago,cant remember exactly.I was working on a building site erecting railings and a partial eclipse of the sun happened.I could see it so clear through my welding visor.It caused quite a stir on the site, the sky darkened and the birds stopped singing.I actually passed my visor around as a crowd gathered and the view through my shaded glass was beautiful.

Cool! Last time I photographed an eclipse was my first time, and lets just say it was a learning experience!  I couldn't wait till the next one, so I could get it right.  My time has come!

Yes, if you have never witnessed a total (umbral) lunar eclipse, make sure you do so, if not this occurrence, then in your lifetime. One of the trappings however is to spend it entirely preoccupied with a camera. It is relatively easy to photograph so don't sweat it too much and make sure you drop the camera a bit and just view it visually - especially if there is a medium to large aperture scope available to you (hint: find an astronomy club to view this event with; many of us love to show off our equipment ). This one looks a little more promising as far as the potential deeper copper-red color than the last few events due to a heightened amount of volcanic activity occurring recently in a few places earth-wide. But of course as is always the case with me, I can assure you it will be entirely overcast over Raleigh, NC.

Don't forget tomorrow Night! Of course your images will be rejected, because of new NASA rules...Ha

He's kidding (kinda). He had a moon photo deactivated because it was so good someone thought NASA took it.

I guess I won't be taking pictures tonight. It's rainy here in the San Francisco Bay Area and the forecast for tonight doesn't look very promising (cloudy).

Sadly it is overcast here and not looking like its gonna clear. (Edinburgh, UK) Nevertheless, I'll take a peek out of the window at 2am to have a look.

I was on my way to yoga, and decided to turn back skipping the class because the moon is so bright and sky is clear...didn't want to miss the opportunity to test it out. But so far none of my shots are good. I have to get out there again and do more test from the link Rob provided.

The sky is crystal clear here tonight ... just getting set up. It is of course h*cking cold.
