Lunar Eclipse
Contest Number: 160 Contest Theme: Open Lens: Pentax-A 200mm F4 Camera: Pentax K5 Shutter Speed: 2s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: vinni, 12-19-2019, 01:52 PM

On January 21st (2019) we were able to witness a full lunar eclipse in my hometown. I decided to set the alarm and get up early to witness the event. It was the first time ever I used my vintage Pentax-A 200mm F4 ... a bit tricky but I didn't have anything else available with such a focal length. The ISO was set to 800. To ensure an interesting composition I used an astronomy app to predict where the moon was going to be during the eclipse, that really helped to get this shot
