A total lunar eclipse – July 27, 2018

Scroll down to content

What a lovely event! This was definitely the darkest lunar eclipse I’ve ever observed. Hanging just above Mars, both rather low towards the south-eastern horizon.

Despite the chaotic weather, I’ve managed eventually to get to a location that allowed me to experience the entire event.

Equipment: Close ups: TS 65Q F/6.5 APO refractor, Canon 550D, ISO 400. Wider views: Canon 550D with Canon 100mm lens. Widest view: same camera but with a Sigma 50mm lens. All on the EQ 6 mount.
