    Ever so COOL! No doubt. Wow. Lovely compilation, too.
    Seems like your camera STAYS where you set it once you fix it to your tripod then! My tripod lets the camera "wander", you know :irked: ... Very nice, more so since I only just BEGAN to see the eclipse when it was as far advanced as in your last photo :D.

    I really like this and actually thought of it myself. Butthe nwe had so many clouds that it would have been rather impossible.

    Well done :)

    Is this digitally combining shots? or did you have it all in one long exposure (the old lenscap trick)

    Excellent shots.
    I took a few last night where we had a really clear sky.
    Unfortunately i didn't get anything particularly good.
    Mainly because my lens isn;t long enough - only 200mm.
    i tried low ISO but the camera wanted longer exposures meaning streaking stars and blurred moon.
    High ISO was a bit grainy but better.
    Wide aperture was better (ie f2.8 compared to f4) but still nothing spectacular.

    What lens and camera did you use for those shots?

    True! especially on full frame ... also for me, 300mm was a bit short and my TC takes too much light so that is not really an option for this sort of shot ;)

    Even having 12.8MP and cropping the image didn't give me anything that good. My girlfriend thinks they're ok and often says i'm too critical on my own stuff.

    Would love a 600mm prime (or longer!) but i don't have several thousand pounds to spend one at the moment!

    Ah ok, yes it was the phase when there was still direct light on the moon ... so 1/2000 was an option. I am very relieved that you shot hand held with 1/2000 .. if it was like several seconds that would be frustrating for my shaking hands ;)
