For anyone who might not have noticed, there was a total lunar eclipse yesterday night, and as certain as the astral conjunction was my presence out there to shoot it! Unfortunately a fatal combinantion of hazy sky, lack of skill and, perhaps, less than razorsharp glass led to fairly poor results... But what is the photographic issue that photoshop can't put a pach on to?

For this one I grabbed a shot of the moon taken before the eclypse and which was sharp enough for the purpose and I used it as a background. Then I took a shot of the eclypsed moon far too blurry to be used by itself but at least with the colors in place. I put the second on the first as a new layer and then "multiply" blended it. Not what I would call genuine fotorgaphy but at least it gives the idea of what we've really seen.

Best viewed downsized ^_^'!

It is surpising how the moon and earth move so quickly while we are taking the shots :-/ I was confused at first why the photos were coming out so blurred for me last night....
Good work even so!!
