Total Lunar Eclipse: 2000 January 20-21:

What a spectacular night! A bright red totality with an ultra clear night made for night photography! I threw this gallery up quick until I get more time to devote to the massive amount of data I Have. Basically I Recorded the entire event on hi8mm digital video with a camcorder and snappied it right of the tapes. I also used a mega slow shutter speed on my Nikon and another digital camera hack to get the results I needed the 35mm black and whites should be in soon so those will be hi res. I was able to get most of the phases from the Earth's umbral shadow, all the way to totality. The pic above was submitted to a NASA contest and The Dr. Sky website my intention was to get a phase chart out quick so the quality is not great. It was a grueling task indeed the temperature was about 22 degrees and a little windy. The Equipment had to be placed outside an hour before to acclimate to the cold temperature otherwise I would have had some major foggy shots! I plan on putting more shots of the phasing and eventual totality and perhaps some video as well so check back soon!

Here are some links for further study:
