Please post moon pics!

I am in South Carolina where we have had rain and clouds since Monday. I have had my house flooded on Monday and some near misses twice since then.

Needless to say, I will not get an opportunity to see the lunar eclipse. I wanna see the pics! Break out those SX50s y'all have been buying. Contest time!grinning smiley

It's NEVER cloudy in sacramento during summertime - ESPECIALLY with this drought. But today: overcast...

It may be clear tonight on the coast but fog can roll in at any time.

I don't think my Sigma 18-250 zoom is going to be of much use but I will be out watching if the weather cooperates.

No moon to be seen here in NC. It's not suppose to clear off until next weekend. Weird weather for Sept. in NC. Highs have been in the 60's for days.

It's been cloudy all day north of Chicago but now starting to clear. Fingers crossed! Will be shooting with an Oly EM-10. Alas, my longest native lens is only 175mm but cropped test shots are better than I expected.

Seriously, we had clear weather here all week and today it's solid overcast. Maybe it'll clear up by nightfall.

I tried some test pics last night.

The moon was visible but there were some thin clouds that really softened the image.

Tonight was supposed to be cloudy, but it looks like there may be a window, so I'll give it a shot.

I tried handheld 50X shots, but without some kind of bracing, it wasn't as smooth as I wanted.

From the test shots, I'll start with 1/125s, ƒ/6.4, ISO 100, and adjust the ISO as the eclipse evolves.

Time to get the gear together.

Use the 2sec timer in this situation. It can be done with practice. Don't try to be perfectly still continuously, be perfectly still in a 'burst' (as you shoot) - if y'know what I mean.

It is clear here tonight, but the eclipse hasn't started yet. Maybe it has, hard to tell. We are going outside to play badminton in the dark while we wait.

Unbelievable. Clear skies all aft/night with just an occasional wispy wind swept cirrus cloud and a huge cirrus blob just came out of no where blanketing 1/3 of the sky.

Shooting through the haze and cloud cover in Los Angeles:





Other folks still watching (we had gone farther up the hill to a quiet spot):



It was far more interesting through the lens than the naked eye. Most of the time the moon was behind so much haze and clouds it was barely visible to the naked eye.

Not very sharp, but not bad for my first attempt:



I wonder if my tripod is just a piece of crap that wobbles when the shutter goes off? I set it to have a 2-second delay so my finger press wouldn't cause shake. Not sharp at all...

This was shot with a Canon T3i and their newish EFS 55-250 IS.

For long range shots it's hard to beat the SX50 with it's 50X Optical Zoom. That's equivalent to a 1200mm zoom. FYI, your 250mm is roughly 5x zoom.

Thanks for all the pics! I'm still dealing with rain and overcast. I had my D600 with 70-300mm G lens all ready (old school lens, plastic mount, no VR - but it takes really good pics!). To no avail. Oh well. Better luck next time, eh?

Meh.

I went to Sentinal Peak (aka A Mountain) where I shot the supermoon in 2012, but Parks & Rec in their wisdome closed the park at 6 anyway, despite the hundreds of folks up there. So I drove around hoping to spot another location, and really didn't. So I missed the moonrise. I got a couple of the eclipsed moon but overall the evening was an annoying bust.

The moon was visible from my backyard so I pushed a recliner up to my backyard sliding glass doors and sat there with some binoculars looking out. I fell asleep after 15 mins sad smiley I think next time I'll stand.
