Lunar Eclipse 2010

Lunar Eclipse 2010.jpg, originally uploaded by Rob Weiher.

It had been raining off and on the last few days and was cloudy all day but as the lunar eclipse started the clouds thinned out and at times opened up enough to get a few shots.

The hardest part was that the moon was almost directly overhead so it was a bit of a challenge getting the tripod set up for that angle. I ended up having to extend one leg longer than the others and brace the tripod so it wouldn't fall backwards. It was a pain in the neck both literally and figuratively.

I have some other shots of it in different stages and will post some of them up later.
