i present you with the post-eclipse moon shown here at stage 12, which is the official end, "as the moon is completely free of the penumbral shadow."
i admit that trying to figure out manual settings the night before the blood moon is not the best way to get the best photos of said occurence.
nevertheless i am pleased with what i did manage to capture.
but let's start with the bloopers shall we?
this was around 3 a.m.
approximately 1 hour later…
i scrambled about changing settings on the fly. i was in an isoapertureshutterspeed super storm.
sure a tripod would have helped, but whatever.
the russet glow was even better through my astro binocs.
hi ho hi ho it's back to bed i go. then up a couple hours later. eclipse was over, but look at that magnificent hunter's moon!
i was rushing all over the front yard trying to get a clear shot.
oh wonderous thrilling life!
