2019 Partial Moon Eclipse


Since I didn't use a tracker for these 1 second exposures (orange moon), they aren't as sharp as I would have liked. These are single exposures and experimental to boot. I tried stacking with the composite tool, but my alignment was slightly off and DPP doesn't have rotating, at least i can't find it.

I used an EOS 5D mark IV aith an EF 100-400mm L II with the EF 1.4 III extender. Not my best work, but pretty cool and I had fun shooting. I had to lay on my back in a lawn chair to get these.


Full moon before eclipse started. If you look at my EXIF info, you will see that my technique is unconventional, but it works for me.
