Lunar eclipse April 2014

My best eclipse shot of the night with the DA*300/4 + HD 1.4 TC. Needed to bump the ISO to 12800 to achieve 1/4 second which was enough to prevent star trailing. - Jack

That's a nice photo. Lucky you, all we got was cloud.

Great capture! Wish we were as lucky to your south.

I had my K-3 and E-M1 all prepped for the event on my balcony with a clear view to the east. A rare 5 straight days of sunshine in a Seattle spring, and the clouds start to move in right as the sun goes down on the night of an eclipse.

Something about Murphy's Law and such...

I looked out the window at 4AM, saw nothing due to clouds.

I phone, because my k-50 came one day late! LOL . I woke my kid up and we went out and looked bigger. My next shots of moon will look a little better! It was cool looking.
