G'day all

I'm outside Longreach [where QANTAS airlines was born about 100 yrs ago] and about 1200km NW of the Queensland state capital, Brisbane

Here's my take on the moon eclipse of 27 July ...

ps: funnily enough the moonrise the next night was a beaut red as well, however it soon changed to its usual white

As always feedback welcome

Cool. We couldn't see it from over here, and the last one here was on a very foggy morning. So I got nothing.

The problem I have with shots of the full moon is that you lose the definition of the mountains and craters. I ran out one evening last week (3/4 full?) to get a shot with my 200-500 and it came out reasonably well. I think I prefer partial moons if it's just the moon.

That said, your sequence is cool. That's a worthwhile thing to do with an eclipse.

G'day Gary

Agree completely re- full-moon vs half-moon and you certainly need heaps of lens to get a decent result. The multi-image approach of mine is only successful when there's something to actually look at and little if any heat haze to disturb the image sharpness - which for us on the night of the eclipse was around 25C at midnight :)
