Photo of the Week for June 13, 2014
While in Hawaii, Canadian amateur astronomer Bill Batchelor had a perfect view of last April’s total lunar eclipse. He assembled this multiple-exposure mosaic from images captured from the south coast of Kauai, Hawaii, using a Canon 550D DSLR camera with a 200mm f/2.8 lens and Vixen Polarie Star Tracker mount. He reports that Alan Dyer’s article in March/April issue of SkyNews, “helped me a lot in planning and composing the imaging session.”
The images taken over about three hours, start at bottom and continue clockwise, with totality at centre. Positions are for aesthetics and do not relate to actual sky locations during the eclipse.
