Lunar Eclipse Image
I made the above image the other night when the lunar eclipse was three quarters through. I shot the little big diggy at iso3200 on tripod with remote fob. I was disappointed in the way the diggy was reading the band of orange red light which is the projection of our polluted atmosphere onto the surface of the moon. It was almost as if the burnt orange light was off the charts on the low end(light there but not there?)of the cameras digital capturing capacity. Anyways, I wish I would have been prepared with a roll of 120 black/white for the Hassy film view camera with the 180mm lense.
