27-28 Aug 2007, Total Lunar Eclipse: Hawaii
Taken from our front porch, resting the camera on the railing,
using the swing-away view screen instead of the eyepiece for increased stability. Typical
shots were about a second long. Cropped in Photoshop 5.0 LE to reduce the field of view.
Camera is Canon PowerShot Pro 1, 7x optical zoom.

Progression. Again, note the curvature of the earth's shadow. It is much wider than the moon itself.
