Lunar Eclipse from South Africa

Lunar Eclipse from South Africa

Canon 60D Tokin 80/200mm lens (circa 1980) ISO: 400 Fstop: 11 Exposure: 2 seconds Visibility came and went as the heavy, moisture rich clouds descended from nearby Table Mountain Preserve, winds carrying salty air from False Bay. The Moon rapidly vanished and then appeared again throughout the early morning hours. Never before and likely never again will I conduct astrophotography in such comfort, from my apartment balcony, a scone and cup of tea in hand.
