2010 Lunar Winter Solstice Eclipse

Like 100’s of thousands of others in the United States today, I am enjoying my morning brew a bit more after having stayed up a bit late last night.  Not out partying, nope… Photographing… the Lunar Eclipse.

We had a slight layer of high clouds here in Denver, but most of the imagery came out ok.  Here’s my contributions to the avalanche of images we’re going to see on all of the social network sites today.

And there it is.  Sorry, didn’t stay for the departure side.  (Apologies for the grain in some of these, I had the ISO jacked up to 1,000 for a few of the later images… oh for a D3s!)

JC, this is the best view of the recent eclipse that I've seen.

We in NorCal were using high altitude cloud filters and were totally washed out.

You and Pinch are becoming Astro sites. ;-)

What can I say other than well done - again - JC! I'll get the settings for that straight-up shot of the full moon from my Instapinch set. Funny...I've had that 600mm rig for about 2 months now and have taken great shots with it in the past - I'm wondering if there is some setting on the Nikon or even the lens that got inadvertently switched or tweaked. Not having full ownership of the camera OR the lens means I simply don't have the experience to optimize them.

Anyhow, onward and upward or whatever the saying is.
