Lunar Eclipse November 19
November, 2021 Lunar Eclipse from Honduras. Credit: Lee Phillips.

I watched this morning’s lunar eclipse from a rooftop in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The weather was on my side. The sky was almost completely clear, and conditions were good: more stars than usual were visible.

All photographs were taken hand held using a 300mm lens on a DSLR with an APS-C sensor (Canon 100D).

By the time I took the rightmost picture in the series shown above, which shows the eclipse maximum, the moon’s disk appeared dusky red, but the color did not register on my camera’s sensor.

Board member Kathi Overton did a much better job, as shown in her pictures below, taken with a Canon T2i and 300mm lens, in Arlington, VA:
