Super Blood Moon Eclipse In Pictures
And I was very pleased to actually get it to work. It's a Celestron C8-SGT, an 8" light collection mirror with a computerized mount, Google it. Here are some pictures of what others are able to do with this scope.
I do not yet have a camera mount adapter for the scope, and taking pictures of far away nebula's requires some special skills as the mount must perfectly track the object, whilst shooting 1000 pictures, which are then melded together by a computer process. That's advanced, and I hope to "be there" by next summer.
For now, just making the scope function was a huge milestone.
The pictures are all from my Canon EOS Rebel Xsi, either using a 600MM fixed zoom on bean bag support (the zoom lens weighs 4 kG, so you can't just "hang" it off the camera T mount or you could damage the camera or lens or both).....the lens itself needs a tripod attachment which I don't have, or using a 55 to 250mm Canon lens on tripod. Many of the pictures during eclipse were exposed from 10 to 20 seconds, and the moon actually moves during that period.
"Next time" I will be better prepared, LOL, in 18 years.
