Very nice. Where are you located, and what time was that for you local time?
I've a very similar view out my window at the moment (it's about 9pm on Tuesday), though I think it's even more 'eclipsed' now.
20D, 200mm, 1/250, f/5.6, ISO 100, 5:18am EST
20D, 200mm, 5s, f/5.6, ISO ISO 200, 6:00am EST
It's not as good as a dSLR shot, but for an S3 IS, it's not bad
I can't take credit for this one. A friend took it using his Canon DSLR connected up to his reflecting telescope. Photo taken in Balmain, Sydney.
tell your mate that is an awesome shot
Do you know what canon dSLR it was?
EDIT; EOS 300D
Yep, you beat me to it.
I'll have to get the telescope details from him too.
All mine were pretty bad. Here were the only two decent ones.
It was way too cloudy where I was to get any good ones when the moon was fully red.
Clouds = Evil
I had my camera and tripod all setup waiting to take pictures of it. But no more than 10 minutes after it started, in came the clouds. Was I angry. Clear skies for 36+ hours before and then I get clouds RIGHT when I don't need them.
I waited five hours with the camera on a tripod and then the clouds blocked the view about an hour before the eclipse started. I tried to get a shot anyway, but the orange light pollution bouncing off of the clouds made it impossible to get anything. I lost the Perseid meteor shower because of the same problem.
At least there is another one coming this spring (if I remember correctly at least). I also think I remember reading that it will be much better for the central US (starting earlier so no need to worry about the sunrise interfering).
There is a partial solar eclipse on Sept. 11. If you can figure this out you will know where it can be seen...I think.
