Club member Ted Timmons shot the recent “blood moon” lunar eclipse and shared his experience and images.
It was a bit of an adventure to sort out how to go about getting the shots. The weather cooperated enough to let me make a few images of the moon. The image of just the moon is straight out of the camera with minimal post-processing.
- For the moon: Sigma 50-500 with a 1.4 teleconverter
- For the foreground in the composite images: Sigma 50-500
- Tripod with a gimbal head
- Cable release
- Mosquito repellent!
This one is a composite image. Not possible with the location, my gear, and especially my skill level to get the epic image of a very large moon with the background. Had to mask, copy, resize the moon to composite in the other image.
Taken in the area just across the street from where I live – Carp River
This image shows the phases of the moon entering eclipse:
Great images! Thanks for sharing Ted.
