Picture of the Day, 2019.02.02

31882136097_4f8a2cb7f6_kLunar eclipse: This is the full moon in full eclipse just after midnight Eastern Standard (GMT -5) on Jan. 21, 2019 — the so-called Full Super Wolf Blood Moon, or whatever. Outside temperature 10F, with Nikon D500 and Tamron 150-600mm G1 lens — ISO 3200, f6,3, 600mm (DX 900mm), 0.3 sec., -2EV — set on a Benro heavy-duty tripod and Movo gimbal head, using a wired remote button. Tough shot with moon at nearly zenith; after rotating camera 85 degrees, I manually focused in 10F weather using the live-view articulated screen. Brrrrrr. Link to Flickr
