Photographer's Note

I have heard the expression "No pain, no gain" so I was pleased that I managed to capture a few worthwhile images of the Lunar Eclipse after spending four cold hours this morning in the company of my camera and tripod in our garden. But I have to admit that by 5 a.m. all I wanted was my bed and so I gave up once the Moon began to escape from the Earth's shadow.

This is a small chronological selection from about 160 images, all taken at 400mm focal length. The first two images here were shot at ISO100 hand held, the rest using a tripod. The images of the "Blood Moon" during totality of the eclipse were all taken at ISO3200 at exposures around 2 to 6 seconds at f/5.6.

A rewarding experience during which I was blessed with wonderfully clear sky. And while the Earth, Sun and Moon will still be around in 2033 for the next "Supermoon" lunar eclipse, I might not be!
