Total lunar eclipse October 27-28,2004
This photo is not a assembly, was taken from a simple way: I left the stopper opened, and every 3 minutes I retired the black cloth that covered my 300mm lens, during a second repeating reiterated times the same procedure.
The apparent movement of the moon is towards the left of the image.
you can see that the moon characteristics appear inverted respect the North hemisphere.
I used film Kodak Ultra 400.

Hello Hernan!
Amazing post.I liked,colors,contrast,
and presentation a lot.

Hello Hernan, good thinking, never seen a shot like this very interesting, Well posted.


Aprecio tu esfuerzo en esta toma consecutiva.
La última vez que intente esto, fue con una Minolta manual, lo que no sabia era que consumia pila para mantener el obturador abierto, me duraron 30 minutos hasta que se cerro :(
La exposición está bastante bien conseguida para ser a mano con un paño. Calculas muy bien 1 segundo :)

Interesting and clever experiment, Hernan, resulting in an image with good graphic quality. Well done.

Well done Hernan, you're a patient man. Good one, thanks,


Great technique and what a result! I wonder if you tested the 'exposure time' of removing the cloth or did you just guess? Excellent photo, anyway.
