My First Successful Total Lunar Eclipse Photo, May 15, 2022.

Obviously, there are things that need to be fixed! But I did want to show all of you what I was able to accomplish (with AndyS' help!).

6. Nice shot. Wonder how you got the orange.

My eclipse photos always come out dark red.
I probably underexposed a bit.
Good stuff.

9. Thanks so much, my dear usonian!

I have a exposure compensation wheel on my Olympus, which allows me to fool around with the color.

I am told that getting an underexposed photo is way better than overexposed. With overexposed, you loose the color completely; it's gone! With underexposed, it's still there; you just have to mess with the exposure a bit. This is my understanding, anyway.

I'll have a look at your photo in just a moment!

13. Thank you so much, my dear Easterncedar! I always share--I can't help it!

Rain is super important to us here in CA too. And we aren't getting nearly enough, plus we squander so much water as well.

I hope you'll see more professional photos than mine! This was the first time I'd really tried to get such a shot. I had a lot of help from a good friend. I'm in his debt!

Thank you for your kind comments!

15. My pic would be low clouds.

I was looking forward to it but the PNW is overcast most of the time.

Maybe tomorrow.

36. i've looked at clouds that way...

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I am sorry you didn't do well (in your eyes, anyway.) Andy helped me quite a lot, as did my realization that I really did need my tripod!

I cannot hold the camera steady enough for these slow shutter speeds. Ah well. Anything to get the photo!

35. Too bad I was driving and couldn't capture the "declipse".

Driving south on the 405 we could see the brightness of the moon reappearing. It was my most memorable eclipse. It worked out because my nephew chose to have his wedding in Culver City.
