|Object: Lunar Eclipse
Over the Charles Bridge, Prague, Czech Republic.
Date: May 4, 2004 (9:16 PM Local
Exposure: 1/8 @ f/5.6 @
Camera: Canon EOS
Digital Rebel (300D)
Equipement: Sigma 24-70 Zoom @ 57mm
Guide Scope: n/a (Hand
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!
