It was a genuine pleasure to witness this beautiful celestial event first hand. It gave me more to think about, than just the techniques needed to photograph it properly.
The first image is a couple of hours before the eclipse began, just an hour after moon rise. The next 5 images are of the eclipse in totality. Here the moon is looking orange in color, as the direct sunlight is now being blocked totally by the earth which is now linearly in the middle of the sun and the moon. The orange color is due to the indirect light reaching the moon, being filtered and refracted through earths atmosphere.
The remaining images are of the eclipse ending. It was a wonderful sight nonetheless, till the Bangalore clouds decided to play sport.. It felt like missing the ending of a great movie... I missed the initial penumbral phase too (sleeping). But then there is always next time.. Aug 28 2007.
Technical data: ISO ranges used: 400, 800, 1600, 3200. Exposure times: 1,2,3,6,8,10,20,30 sec (with tripod). The above collage is a best-of almost 250 time-lapsed images of the event.
