One of these pictures I took through a tree with a 200mm telephoto lens at f/4.6, 5s exposure with a Fuji Sensia 400 asa film. For the other I used a 8 " Schmidth-Cassegrain telescope at f/6.3, 4-7s exposure with a Fuji Sensia 400 asa film.

The sky was very clear, and I used my homemade 135mm F/5 dobsonian telescope and Sony P30 digital camera to take these pictures.

With 19 degrees on the thermometer and windy conditions, I decided to utilize my intervalometer for the progression shots. I took them with my Canon EOS D2000 digital camera and 35-350 mm f3.5-5.6 lens at 160th of a second at 200 iso. The totality shot was a 6 second exposure.

The eclipsed moon was definitely brighter than it was during the eclipse of May 2003. Photo details: Olympus C-3040Z digital camera coupled afocally to a Borg 76ED refractor with a Scoptronix adapter on a Meade 20mm Plossl. The entire assembly was piggybacked on a Meade 8" LX200 with the LX200 acting as a tracking platform. 2-3 second exposure @ 200 ASA setting.
