I'm no photographer, but since I was staying up late to watch this morning's total lunar eclipse anyway (what is it, almost 6am now?), I decided to break out my camera, point the lens skyward, and see what happens. Of course, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and I messed with all sorts of settings (ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, white balance), but I eventually came up with some interesting results
About mid way through the event, the sky over Washington, DC become overcast, putting a damper on the re-emergence phase. But at one point I caught a glimpse just as the moon peeked through a hole in the cloud cover.
As I was tinkering with various exposures just before the eclipse, I accidentally took the following photo which I think came out pretty cool. Check out Orion and Taurus! Note to self: I need to try out more night sky photography.
By the way, as the eclipse reached totality, it was gorgeous through my telescope. Now if only I could figure out how to hook my camera up to that!
