Total Lunar Eclipse 28th August 2007


The first hour or so was a total loss, with the
moon almost completely obscured by cloud cover.
When it finally emerged, I couldn't get the
camera settings right at first, but I've included
these to show the colour the moon appeared
until it was fully eclipsed.

The good ones are at the bottom of the page :o)


As the Earth's shadow moved across the moon
my exposure level was far too high and all the
detail was lost...

Here's where I finally got the settings right
and by this time the redness had disappeared...
