Lunar Eclipse Time-Lapse (2018)
A time-lapse sequence of the Lunar Eclipse on 27 July 2018, photographed from my backyard with a Nikon D750 and my 200-500mm Lens with a 2x Teleconverter (1000mm).
HDR tone mapping and Exposure normalisation applied, with a touch of Image stabilisation.
The Camera was tracking the Moon on my Celestron AVX Telescope Mount.
What can we learn by observing Earth's shadow on the Moon?
Notice Earth's spherical shadow on the Moon. Yes, just like all the other Planets in the Universe, the Earth is not Flat!
