1. Yup, I got lucky.

      I also took about fifty other pictures on ten different shutter speeds before I figured out it was always going to look blurry unless I telescoped down my tripod so it was sturdier.

      We’ll see if I remember that come time for the next eclipse in 2010.

    1. Damn that is a nice photo…wonder how they made it. It takes a long ass exposure to capture stars on camera, and the moon is pretty bright even at totality. I bet this is a composite.


      …made by combining a filtered, telephoto image of the Moon and surrounding starfield with a telescopic exposure.
