Fantastic 'super moon' total lunar eclipse last night.

I enjoyed the fantastic 'super moon' total lunar eclipse last night. It was the best one I had ever seen. It was a very long drawn out affair, not as exciting as a total solar eclipse but to me much better than any partial solar eclipse, even a 99% one. I got to see it from the comfort of my own home too!

I had a bit of a photo-fest! Mostly manual exposures on a tripod with a long zoom lens. I also took some camcorder videos but they were a bit grainy.


Camera Canon EOS 1200D entry-level DSLR + 75-300 zoom lens.

Camcorder: Canon Legria HF R57 on program or low light settings but with manual exposure control and focus (mostly).

Velbon and Slik mini-tripods.

All photos (c) me 2015.
