Morning Moon

The Moon photographed in the morning at 8:04am on November 4 2020 here in Palm Springs from my backyard. Fujifilm X-H1 camera and the Fujifilm XF100-400 lens, handheld.

Actually it was shooting photographs through my homemade eight inch reflecting telescope at the night skies back when I was 12 years old that really got me first interested in photography. Back then I had a Miranda 35mm camera that I had bought for $35.00. Funny thing that I remember.

I was the youngest member ever of the Astronomical Society Of The Pacific.

Lunar Eclipse As Sport

Almost at it’s maximum the other night for a total Lunar Eclipse and as advertised “blood red” color. Sky conditions still had some cloudy haze. Photographed with a Fujifilm X-H1 camera and Fujifilm 100-400mm lens. On an Induro tripod with a FOBA ball head.

Red Bull Sports likes the photo too. Funny thing, I didn’t know it was a sport…
