Lunar Eclipse of November 8, 2003
Below is a composite image of individual pictures of the eclipse. They were taken using a Sony Mavica CD–1000. Location was N43º 06´ 41“ – W91º 52´ 59“. All times are CDT and were based on the cameras internal clock. Later I discovered that the camera clock was about 4 miutes fast but the times below have not been corrected for that error.
Unlike the May eclipse, I limited my exposure times to 1 second maximum which reduced the bluring problems. The brighter stages were shot at 1/4 second which was still a bit to long.
