It started out sufficiently clear, some clouds were predicted, but that should just add to the drama, or so I hoped.
I had set up two cameras on two tripods. The first camera was equipped with a telephoto lens to show the details.
Here the results:
@ 4:45 am
@ 5:03 am
@ 5:26 am
@ 5:49 am
@ 6:03 am
And then all of a sudden, the moon disappeared in a low cloud cover, this was the last I saw of it....
@ 6:15 am
With the other camera, this one equipped with a wide-angle lens, I took an image every 10 minutes or so. I then put all the images together to show the course of the eclipse (click on the image to see a bigger version):
Frozen to the bone, after not enough sleep and being out on the oceans edge for hours, it was rather disappointing to see the moon just vanish in the clouds...but a beautiful sunrise and a nice hot cup of coffee later at home made it all good again. Next time then.....
