Tricks to help Photograph the Lunar Eclipse 21st January
« on: January 14, 2019, 12:34:36 PM »
The total lunar eclipse occurs for observers in all of North and South America. Observers in Europe and Africa can see the eclipse in progress as the Moon sets.

To get the best exposure you need o delve into your camera's setting to find "Spot metering" and select it.  Then when you point your camera at the moon centre the viewfinder on the brighter part of the moons surface and then you should get a reasonable image.  If you are using a zoom lens your would be better to use a tripod.

Next time I see the moon!!!! I will take a couple of images to show you what I mean.

Any other suggestions from our photographic 'experts' would be appreciated!
