This was a once in a blue moon opportunity. I had two parties to go on the New Year’s eve but the full moon was very nice to miss. I took the longest lens I have (70-200mm 2.8L canon) and took this picture. It wasn’t coming out correctly at first, later I took the tripod on the driveway and took this without the slightest vibrations but somehow missed the crystal sharp focus. Here it is ..the first one with 2600K temperature and second with 4000K both zoomed in to the max 200mm.
No, its not the Mitsubishi Eclipse . Its the total Lunar eclipse observed from most parts of North American continent in February 2008. I was in Orlando, Florida and had just checked into the motel. It was a beautiful view from the lawn of the motel the most expected Eclipse event since the next Total Lunar eclipse is not until Dec 21, 2010.
So I grabbed my gear (Canon 10D with 70-200 2L lens). I was experimenting Sunny 16 rules and basic exposure guide to capture moon. Finally, got one.
