Last night I was going through my email when one from Roger Parsons from the LNU alerted me to the fact that starting at 06:32 this morning there would a lunar eclipse.
More details about the event can be found here at Yahoo.
Although I’m on leave I got aup just before 6 and luckily for me I could witness the event from my upstairs bedroom window. Sure enough at the specified time the eclipse started. I managed to get a few good shots with my 7D+70-200 f/2.8 IS mkII lens, I tried the first few hand-held and then attached the lens to the Manfrotto Monopod, as the eclipse was taking place the sky was getting brighter and the moon was getting lower.
By 7:40 the moon was in total eclipse and I could no longer see it. By the time the eclipse finishes the moon will no longer be visible. The better pictures can be found below.
UPDATE: My friend Richard has also written a short piece about the eclipse, this can be found here.
