Cool pic. Blue Moon taking a pic of blood moon. cheers My nephew is a tornado chaser and he showed me a pic. his friend sent to him that was very cool. I assume the guy is from Texas. It had time laps images arched through the sky with a barn painted with the Texas flag.

Many thanks for taking the time to look and a special thanks to those of you that left comments. I updated the original post to include a couple of composite images to show various stages of the eclipse. The first image shown is what I captured on a single frame shooting at 700mm. All shots were captured using the same gear at 700mm.

The composite images are created using selected shots captured during the eclipse and cobbled together in Photoshop. Any sequence series you see of an eclipse was likely created with Photoshop or similar program used to edit images.

For a tad more insight, I shot the eclipse from 33 degrees North Latitude in North Texas. By the time the eclipse reached totality allowing the full moon to appear red, it had climbed very high in the sky to nearly 70 degrees altitude.

From a practical standpoint, shooting an object with super telephoto optics at 700mm provides a very narrow field of view, similar to looking at an object through a straw. Considering the eclipse at totality occurred so high in the sky from my position on the planet, the camera was elevated near the max limit of the tripod and gimbal head I was using to support the heavy load. Looking up with a straw at that angle means no objects on the ground were visible.

Regarding the cool composite images that show an object on the ground and the eclipse, they are created in Photoshop the same way my above composite images are created except they start with a wide angle landscape shot. Most use a landscape image as the background or base layer, often captured with a wide angle lens, between 14mm to 24mm. Then the eclipse images of the moon are shot with a different lens, usually a telephoto or super telephoto between 200mm to 1000mm and cobbled together in Photoshop.

Thanks again

Blue Moon
