January 1, 2010 Partial Lunar Eclipse
A lunar eclipse to start the New Year was definitely a rare event. Right after the fireworks, I prepared my tent, DSLR, digital camera, and astroscan reflector telescope for a 3 – hour observation and imaging of the partial lunar eclipse. The smoke and its awful smell for 3 hours didn’t stop me.
I still have lots of pictures to edit and upload, but these were the best and only images where I have a full view of the moon. I took these pictures using my digital camera on Astroscan.
My DSLR images didn’t capture the whole view of the moon. Nevertheless, I’ll still upload them as soon as I find time.
To the stars!
