Lunar Eclipse 28-Oct-2004
The whole drive home the skies were clear and blue. Saw moon rising large over Ochs Orchards, and it followed me home through Edenville and Pine Island.
I took out the TV-85 around 2330 (7:30 EDT) and after a few aborted attempts with the Vixen LVW eyepieces, I settled on the MaxView 40. I had trouble achieving sharp focus, probably due to wrong diopter setting on EOS, and the clouds descended before I could dial it in. Got off a few shots early in eclipse after 0115 (9:15 EDT) through light cloud cover. Only two pics worth sharing:
As totality approached, the skies became heavily overcast. At totality (0226) there was no sign of moon.
