We pretty much had a full lunar eclipse tonight with clear skies. Of course my Nikon with the tripod and the 300mm lens had to have a dead batter, so I used the Canon Sx260 I had such good luck with at concerts. The results are grainy but pretty good for a pocket camera. This is about 5 minutes after the peak. No tripod, just sitting on top of my trash can in the driveway.
Here it was a bit before the peak
Modern pocket cameras use some sort of multi-shot HDR process to take low light photos. My Sony RX100-III does even better at night but does not have the zoom to do justice to the moon. It s a better camera, and I still intend to share pictures from my trip to Europe but just have not gotten around to it, but here is what the Sony saw:
Sort of apropos to this blog, the local coyotes went absolutely apesh*t right at the peak of the eclipse. Howling from every direction.
