My son Daniel got a telescope for Christmas, so when there was going to be a lunar eclipse Taunya woke him up at 5:30 am to look at it. Unfortunately, with slight haze from light clouds and a very dim moon, it was difficult to see much detail with his telescope. I then thought I would take some quick photographs of the lunar eclipse. I actually was able to frame in two stars as well.
ISO 400, 420mm(300mm with 1.4x tele), f/5.6, 2.5 sec
I had the same trouble with trees and clouds as well. Here is a shot focused on the trees rather than the moon.
ISO 400, 420mm, f/5.6, 1.3 sec
This is the last shot I took before having to stop and get ready for work.
ISO 400, 420mm, f/5.6, 1/4 sec
This is what happens when you think you can hand hold an eclipse shot…..Usually you can shoot a bright moon hand held because the shutter speed is fast enough.
