Lunar Project

    Newer Older

    This is a compilation of eight shots I took of the total lunar eclipse on Wednesday February 20, 2008. The first photo was taken at about 9:11 PM EST and the last photo was taken at 11:43 PM EST. It was pretty easy to do, I just set the timer to go off every 20 minutes, so I could go outside and take a photo.

    Inspired by this photo from a previous eclipse.

    Louis Moga, Helena Ferry, Az~Kate, and 21 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Thank you, kpakk, rashundrayton and CurveTo.

      expressionist.aps, sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I used the 200mm zoom lens for these photos. I really enjoy night photography, also. It seems to me that it takes a lot of practice and a dark sky doesn't hurt :)
