The Moon during totality of a Total Lunar Eclipse.
This photograph shows the rich red colour which the Moon turns during the totality phase of a Total Lunar Eclipse. During this phase the light refracted around the Earth and through the Earth’s atmosphere causes the moon to appear red.
Photographing the moon during totality of a lunar eclipse can be challenging as the brightness significantly decreases. It is not uncommon for photographs such as this to have exposure times of several seconds. The longer exposure time means that the Moon will move during that time across the sky, introducing the requirement for a tracking mount, polar alignment and other technicalities. When I started photographing lunar eclipses it was the days of film photography and I can tell you that it is an awful lot easier now with digital cameras, even if there are still some tricks required.
