May 4, 2004 Lunar Eclipse from Prague
Object: Lunar Eclipse Over the Charles Bridge, Prague, Czech Republic.

Date: May 4, 2004 (9:16 PM Local Time)

Exposure: 1/8 @ f/5.6 @ 1600 ISO

Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel (300D)

Equipement: Sigma 24-70 Zoom @ 57mm

Guide Scope: n/a (Hand Held)

Hardware & Software: The Canon File Viewer Utility was used to output the raw image as a 16bit/ch tif. Then the image was then tweaked and curve adjusted using Picture Window Pro. Oh - BTW, the smearing you see above and below the moon was a real visual event that was plainly visible to to eye, not a camera artifact.

Info: This image was taken shortly after the lights of the Charles Bridge were turned on. The effect was perfect. It also happened to be my wife's and my 13th wedding aniversary. Needless to say, it was perfect! Also, click here for the Total Eclipse.
