Did you stay up to watch the lunar eclipse? Zoom kept reminding me that it was tonight, and wanted me to wake him up, so I did. Hey, no school this week anyway!
Here's my first picture, before I woke him up.
And a little later... These two pictures are basically the same time but different exposure. In the second one, you can see how the moon is turning red. You can see a star in the left third of the picture, toward the bottom.
Here it is almost complete. Again at the longer exposure first to see the red (and with stars), and then the same phase but shorter exposure to see the eclipse!
And then we were having so much fun that we decided to try and shoot Orion. I can't believe I got such good pictures, I've actually learned something about photography! I know lots of people have great pictures of constellations and the moon but this is the first time I've ever gotten better pictures than I expected, instead of much worse.
And one final picture of the eclipsed moon with stars.
SO MUCH FUN. Totally worth getting up for, I'm glad he asked me to do it!
