Finally 21 years after my last moon eclipse, there’s one visible from where I happen to be.
This time I used my Fuji Finepix S5000 at 6 Megapixels, f stop 7 and a variety of shutter speeds (similar to those used before) bracketed for each shot.
It certainly was a lot easer this time. Not just because I was able to see it from my house with easy access to hot brews. But also the camera was a breeze to use, in colour, good zoom (x10 optical) and the settings visible in the view finder meaning not other light is needed.
The results are as good if not better than the previous set. Unfortunately intermittent low clouds meant that the timings where a bit flexible but around 30 minutes between each shot. Some high cloud also gave a fuzzy quality to some pictures.
