I did some shots of the lunar eclipse on 21 December with a Nikon D90 and 150-500mm lens which I have posted on another forum Nikon D90 moon photos, however; I also took my Olympus E-P1 and Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 to take the more "atmospheric" wide shots.

The first 3 shots are hand-held

There should be a moon here but it is hidden by cloud on the horizon.

That one was ISO1600 at 1/20 second. The eclipse is almost over at this stage and this has come out a lot brighter than it was.

Portrait in Canon 50D Light by peterb666, on Flickr

The only lighting in that one is the LCD from a Canon 50D. My camera was set to ISO1600, f/1.4 and 1/25s and then pushed up around 2EV. There is a lot of noise in that and in retrospect it should have been set to ISO3200 and 1/20s which would probably allow me to add a little more fill-light without any extra noise. It is really difficult to judge exposure off the LCD of the Olympus E-P1.

The last shot was done on a tripod. This is a single exposure but I have bracketed it and will do a composite with layers at a later date. Still looks pretty good as-is.

A rather conventional exposure for 3.2 seconds @ ISO200.

Thanks again peter, really enjoy your work! I find it a bit tricky with the iso noise on the pens too. I'm thinking of going "raw" and using lightrooms noise reduction algorithms to assist. Such a lovely lens too:)

Nice work

Thanks guys. Re RAW - that's all I use now. You can get back a little bit extra from blown highlights and don't have to worry about getting white balance right at the time. One less thing to distract you. I wish they could stick the Nikon D90 sensor in the Olympus Pen. It would be heaven.
