So here in Israel there's a moon eclipse right now and the moon is red
The pic isn't very good because I don't have a tripod and the shot is a 2 secs length one

original after some sharpening in photoshop:

Very nice urik, you should make a HDR picture to get the details out

Thanks for the pictures. I didn't feel like moving my curtains and looking outside.


You would have to go outside anyway because it's right above us now. So I saved you even more effort

Yeah it doesn't look THAT red when you look at it but I believe that because of the lights of the street. I watched it under a light post, and when I move a bit far from it, I saw it more red =\

Dude its exactly the same here.
Why is this happening again ?


i belive the earth blocks out the sun from the moon, somehow turning it red. Not sure if thats the right answer but ive been told its that.

Use manual focus, when the focus is at "infinite", and then take a reference point of where it is, (for example in my case it was a bit above my building, between 2 water containers), and then point at that reference point and slowly go up until you see it.
You GOTTA use manual focus, because there's not enough contrast for the camera to auto focus in it.

And use long exposure, while working in manual mode

Like I said earlier: Try to make a HDR pic (take several pics of one thing with different exposures ranging from bright to almost dark, then merge them together with photomatix: www.hdrsoft.com )

The earth blocks out the sunlight and the moon turns red because (i think) the particles in the earth's atmosphere create a sort of red glow and that's what we see.

A lunar eclipse on the same day as the Buddhist holiday of Chotrul Duchen.

Lol I had enough trouble to take a single good shot without a tripod, no way I'm taking 3 exact shots
But anyway what can improve the HDR here? I mean, It's all black and a moon. Not a lot of ranging contrasts

EDIT: OMG I quoted the wrong person ?

We had it here, but it just looked a dull brown. Quite rubbish for us really.
