Against all weather predictions, including my
local Clear Sky Clock, the March 3 lunar eclipse was well seen from this neck of
the woods. The eclipse itself began before moonrise for the eastern United
States. Missing the opening stages was further complicated by clouds
around sunset. Miraculously, however, the sky cleared about 30 minutes
after moonrise, allowing me an unimpeded view of the end of totality and the
closing umbral stages.
The photos below were taken at the prime focus of my 4-inch f/10 Vixen refractor using a Canon Digital Rebel (300D) digital single-lens reflex camera set at ISO 200. Each exposure was 4 seconds. Click on each for a larger view.
