This past Monday was a total lunar eclipse where I live. The only trouble is, I live in the Pacific Northwest, land of clouds. It’s not as bad here as in Portland or Seattle, but it became an issue Monday night. So I didn’t get to see all of the eclipse or the red color, but I did see a good hour.
The nice thing about the position of the moon was I could haul my telescope out of the garage and set up in the driveway. The moon was bright enough that the neighborhood lights didn’t interfere with my viewing. So yay on that. Double yay I didn’t have to stay up terribly late or get up at some unholy hour.
The eclipse began at 10:50 p.m. ish here.
Without further ado, my photos. By the end, the clouds became thicker, so those shots are not as clear.
What I had to shoot through…
One truly clear shot
