Luna & Gaia's Shadow

Luna & Gaia's Shadow

A lunar eclipse lets us see an Atlantic sunrise and Pacific sunset on the Moon in HDR. This image captures the Moon at the beginning, middle, and end to totality. Made from my home in Austin, Texas, with a Questar 3.5" telescope and a Sony NEX-5N with an APS-C size sensor at prime focus (1400mm FL at f16), the image is a high dynamic range stack of 24 images of the Moon at 3 points in the eclipse: just before, during, and just after totality. Exposures range from 4 sec at ISO 800 to 1/10 sec at ISO 200.
