Total Lunar Eclipse – 04 April

This was the first total lunar eclipse of 2015. It was the shortest just lasting four minutes and forty-three seconds, from 4:58 to 5:03 PDT. All photos were taken at a Full Frame equivalent focal length of 1200mm and manual focus. Photos were cropped a bit to center the moon as much as possible, keeping the moon’s size the same (6000×4000 to 5000×3333).

The photos were taken at 4:44, 4:56, 4:59, 5:00 (Middle of Eclipse), 5:02, 5:03, 5:06 & 5:13 PDT.
