Blood Moon - Total Lunar Eclipse

Apr 15, 2014

For my family and friends who couldn't observe the "Blood Moon" full lunar eclipse on April 14-15, 2014 due to overcast, rain, and snow, I braved the sub 70 degree temperatures and fresh desert night air to do a time lapse video of the event. Here are over 220 still photographs taken with my still camera (taken 1 minute apart) then condensed into a one minute clip.

I shot at 400 ISO, initially starting with a 1/800 shutter speed then gradually reduced my shutter speed to 2.5 second per frame (on tripod, of course) to capture the very low light red hue of the moon. When the eclipse began to end, I stepped up the shutter speed gradually back to 1/800 second rate. Enjoy!!!
