    Upcoming Lunar Eclipses - AM 16 June (TOMORROW) and 10-11 DECEMBER

    We have a lunar eclipse happening from about 5.20 AEST tomorrow morning. I will go just up the road where there are nice mountain silhouettes for a backdrop. I can take the van and sit in comfort with thermos of hot coffee and laptop.

    And another one in on 10-11 DECEMBER - article here

    I am planning to set up the camera in interval timing and see if I can collate a time lapse video. The the H2 lets you set it up for interval timing with up to 255 exposures. I'm going to do a 'test run' at moonrise tonight (I can set it up on my verandah facing east). Can someone suggest how long the interval should be? I thought I would make it Aperture priority on f8, ISO will be 100 or 200 (it's a noisy bugger).

    I can choose Number of exposures, from 2 – 255; and Interval duration, from 1 second – 24 hours. 30 secs was suggested on IceinSpace which probably sounds about right.

    Kym, you lucky folk further south might get extra special colours due to the volcanic ash plume.

    Sorry for tantalising those beset by clouds, maybe the Sept one will have better conditions for you.

    I am heading out, not sure where yet, but this high cloud is a pain.... Will make some interesting images....

    BTW Odille The 30s per exposure should give you 2.125hrs of exposure time. Are you sure that is long enough if you want to go from first contact to moonset given you can only do up to 255 images? You could always increase the interval to 5 sec or even 10 sec....

    Anyway good luck with it...

    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    Yes, I night make it 45 seconds. I did my moonrise test of 60 images on 30 sec interval and it came up well. Now I have to work out how to stick 'em together. Can I do it in iMovie, does anyone know?

    I don't think you want to doing 45 or even 30 second exposures. The moon will track across the sky and you WILL get movement blur. You don't need long exposures for the moon.

    I see you mean interval between images. Sorry. Continue. This threw me off:

    BTW Odille The 30s per exposure should give you 2.125hrs of exposure time.

    what would be the best time on the east coast to get pictures? it says maximum eclise is at 6.13 on east coast. Is that when the moon is orange?
    Id like to get pics of the orange moon, the other things are too early for me I usually get up at 9.30 so 6 am will be harsh for me.

    The sky above Sydney is clearing....

    Do I set the alarm and risk rising for nothing if the clouds return?

    I'm getting up at 5 am as always so I'm hoping there'll be a few gaps in the clouds. Nothing ventured nothing gained you late risers, you can always go back to bed !
