The day started out with a lot of clouds so I didn’t think would get a chance to see the eclipse. But, the clouds moved out right before the start. I setup my Meade ETX90EC and connected my Canon T3i. I was a little out of practice so didn’t get the best focus or exposure […]
It has been clear nights all this week so setup the Meade Lightbridge since Jupiter and Saturn are up at sunset and Mars would rise around 10:30 PM. Forgot to check the moon but it was also already up. I also decided to let the kids stay up late since so many targets to view.
The clouds cleared and I was able to use the Meade ETX 90EC with the Canon to get some images of the moon. Unfortunately, the clouds came back and I missed the lunar eclipse in the morning. The full image is available at https://clearskytonight.com/wiki/Jan_30,_2018.
