Lunar Eclipse

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!   No, I wasn't going to stay up for any lunar eclipse.  From my experience, they're nothing much.  The moon gets a reddish tinge.  Big deal.  I can always go online to see what I missed.  But we did have a very nice full moon with a rainbow around it.  I could photograph the full moon, or photograph the rainbow, but not both at the same time.  It is one drawback about photography.  The moon is a big ball of light and so you have to reduce aperature and increase shutter speed, but when you do so, everything around the light source becomes black.

And if I adjust the camera's settings to capture the rainbow, the moon becomes a white dot.

I can copy the detailed moon onto the rainbow pic, but that just looks stupid.

  1. Bob & I got up at 2:30 and again at 2:55 to see the finale. Not overwhelming, but still pretty cool!
