Despite cirrus, clouds and haze, we were abe to take some pictures of the eclipsed Moon and realized this composite showing the dimension of the Earth's shadow cone. It was easier with a hoop! But the Moon was too high and my girlfriend is too small. :o) We were really really lucky: less than an hour after the end, it started raining for good!

Photo detail: Canon 30D + barlow x2 + Megrez SD 80/480 refractor on a cheap equatorial mount.

Here is the final result of a process of two moon pictures taken, one when the moon was in the penumbra cone, the other when the moon was completely outside the earth shadow. A blend (subtraction) of the two inverted picture has taken to this result. THE PENUMBRA is well represented at the right side of the moon in light blue. I think this is the only method to show the penumbral phase of an eclipse. The exposition of the two images was the same (1/1000 sec) by a SC 8" and a reflex camera at the prime direct focus. A film was used (Kodak Gold 200) scanned by a Nikon film scanner.

First image taken from my north Texas home site. The partially eclpsed Moon had just risen out of the eastern horizon and was quite red from the penumbral light and our horizon's dust. Both effects result from the same atmospheric dust. Taken with ED-80 pro, and ToUCam 840K at f/7.5

To add movement to the images, I build an animation showing the occultation of 59 Leo (mag 5) during the last penumbral phase of the eclipse.
