    Shot this last night in the middle of the total lunar eclipse as seen from Southern California. Lens was a Takahashi Sky90 telescope @ f4.5. Taken with a GH3.

    Very cool! I did not realize that the moon moved that fast{I mean the Earth rotated that fast}. I had never shot video of the moon before. I tried to photograph the blood moon and got OK pics but with motion blur - now I know why since my shutter speeds were 1 second and longer.

    One more Eclipse Video - GH3

    Thanks.

    Here's one more video taken early during the lunar eclipse event. The lower left corner of the moon appears to have vanished. Exposure is set as to not overexpose the lit portion of the moon. Same equipment as the full eclipse clip.

    Please see the next post below....
