A couple of summers ago we had this amazing lunar eclipse, and to catch a better glimpse of the phenomenon I went to a National Park -not so far from my hometown- armed with my then state-of-the-art Sony DSC-75 and a tripod. The place was packed with people, it was summer after all. I was clueless about astronomy photography, but there I was, surrounded by other visitors who were asking questions like ‘Why is your camera pointing towards the sky?’ ‘What’s an eclipse?’, etc. My expression went from ‘wow’ to incredulity, how were they so unaware about the eclipse? But then they knew everything about Mexican soap operas. Priorities, I guess. Anyway, all my photos turned out noisy and crappy, so this is a photo of the moon taken with Canon 7D.
