I just came across this article in Popular Science about the upcoming Super Moon lunar eclipse this Sunday, Sept 27. First Super Moon eclipse in 32 years, plus a blood moon!

The article mentions times visible for your location.

It would be fun to see photo results from this event.

Here is mine! Its not perfect..I just don't have the best setup. I really need a 600mm+ tele. 300mm on full frame is just not enough. I had my D610 set to crop mode too. I had the focus perfectly set but when I adjusted the camera must have bumped the focus ring and once the moon goes dark, its almost impossible to get a sharp focus. Oh well. I'm happy with it and it was something new to shoot and I think my first time shooting a full lunar eclipse.

D610 + 70-300 VR. I'm not telling my settings because they are embarrassing. LOL. I broke all the rules and I don't care.

I got some decent shots with the 7dmkii and the Tammy 150-600.

Errrmaghhherd!!! The red eclipse was red as hell!!! I was astonished at the degree of redness. This is for my Spanish-speaking friends: "I am seeing the red eclipse."

I forgot about last night, but i got a photo tonight, more orange than red now though, I used my old Fuji F600EXR compact camera on a tripod.
