Uncategorized The Moon in Eclipse December 29, 2010 Sean Dague 3 Comments This isn’t totality, but it’s just about as far as we got to see before those clouds you can see moving in blocked out the rest of it. I shot this by just holding my Canon S90 up to the eyepiece on my telescope. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

Nice shot for a hand held eyepiece projection. I got some decent shots myself. I made it to totality before the clouds rolled in. Here’s my best shots with my Nikon D90 through my 6″ reflector.
Very nice. I need to get some kind of mount to make lunar picture taking something that doesn’t take 30 seconds to line up a shot. 🙂
head to Home Depot and get a few bolts and a pipe clamp and stuff and I’m sure you can have something adjustable for a few bucks. I’m thinking of doing that myself so I can use some of my other cameras for video recording through the scope. I’m not really happy with the HD video my D90 will record through the scope. I have little control over exposure so even Jupiter is too bright let alone the moon. I think eyepiece projection recorded with my Kodak Zi8 at 1080p or 720p/60fps will allow for more options not to mention being able to choose my magnification with eyepieces/barlows.
