april moon 3

April 10th, 2014

Thursday 10th April, seeing now that the full moon this Monday night will be a full lunar eclipse, or a so called “blood moon”. I had no idea before I started. Hope it’s a clear night just past midnight.

april moon 2

April 7th, 2014

two nights later, found an old vivitar doubler for the 500mm takumar so, crop factor plus makes it a 1400mm lens on the sony nex6 –  iso 400, ss 60, adjusted f stop f8. crazy, wasn’t even dark yet, used self timer on tripod.

hoping next several nights (full moon) are like these last couple, must have been higher 60’s and clear today.
