[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A shot of a lunar eclipse, which was tonight, on the new year's eve. Feels a bit weird that it happened in this very special night, but it was quite interesting to watch it, though it was only partial...

That's a pity that i was so excited watching and trying to capture it, that I forgot to lower the f-number, and the edges of the moon are slightly blurred.. my fault =(

Hi Svetlana,

when you say "lower the f-number", you mean opening a wider lens aperture? how would that work, you have to close aperture giving a f16 or f32 to get more DOF; and use a tripod because exposure time would rise. And maybe a more sensible ISO than 100.

anyway, the photo is beautiful, hny 2010


Not easy to capture congratulation
