Coming on the heels of my aurora post I thought I'd post this warning about an upcoming lunar eclipse. I've missed the last few eclipses, so I hope to be able to catch this one. http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2008 ... clipse.htm There are many ways to photograph an eclipse. You can put your camera on a tripod and take a series of pictures from the same perspective and then stack them together, showing a series of copies of the moon as it moves through the sky and changes color and brightness. I've seen that before and it's a striking presentation. With a telephoto lens you could try getting a tighter shot, perhaps to capture the unique coloration of the moon during an eclipse. There's talk in the article about the moon turning turquoise, I'd like to get a shot of that.
