Super BlueBlood Moon (31 January 2018)
Like a lot of people, I tried to take photos of the moon on the 31st Jan 2018 for the Super Blue Blood Moon.
Here is one of my test shot… at around 7:40pm (Perth time). It is summer here in Australia so it was still pretty bright at 7pm… with sunset around 7:19pm that night.
As soon as it got dark, you can already see the eclipse starting…
I used two cameras that night. A Canon EOS 7D MkII with Canon 70-300mm L lens and a Canon Powershot G3X (with 24-600mm lens). The images you see here were mostly from the 7D. I was hoping the 600mm on the G3X will give me a better result but there were lots more detail on the 7D. All the images (from both cameras) were cropped.
Series of shots taken between 8pm to about 8:50pm.
As moon gets darker, I had to adjust the exposure (and bump the ISO a bit)…
I didn’t wait for the full cycle of the eclipse to end coz there were too many mozzies out that night.
These photos were taken from my backyard coz I was too lazy and tired to go out that night. Had a long day as it was my son’s first day in kindy as well so we had an early dinner that evening and put him to bed around 7pm.
