Re: Lunar eclipe early Wed morning


 

Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing!

 

Rockford knew there was an eclipse coming, so it put up the nice clouds in preparation for the guest last night. This screenshot of the forecast proves that the sky here has a sense of humor!

No, here are pics made with my IPhone held up to the eyepiece of my Stowaway.

Do you think I'll need a field flattener with the Stowaway and a full frame DSLR?

Stowaway with DSLR would be quite good. Certainly not too much.

In Nor Cal it will be a clear night. The only 2021 total lunar eclipse begins around 1:45am Wednesday 5/26/21 with totality around 4:16am.

What FL is good? How about Stowaway with a DSLR? Too much? Then just a 400mm lens? Or even less?

And any recommendations for settings for AP 1100 GTO (perhaps an overkill but is all I got until my Mach2 arrives).
