    Looney

    Couldn't bring myself to stay up all night for the lunar eclipse on April 15, but it was perfectly positioned between the trees in my back yard and the Populist never sleeps. About an 8 hour exposure.

    It's just barely visible in the down sampled version above, but at full resolution, you can see another trail. Saturn at magnitude +.02 and Mars at -1.4 also would have gone by, so this is probably Mars.

    Wow that's great! Thanks for posting it. Yes Mars was pretty close the the moon that night!
    I did stay up for a look but we had fog and I missed it.

    What kind of film please? I might want to copy you!

    Nothing special. It's only identified as Fujifilm for color prints. ISO 200.

    There's another lunar eclipse on October 8, alas, only part in Wisconsin before the moon sets, but, although pretty near the horizon when it ends, the whole event visible in California.

    great shot Nick! I'm impressed at the luck (or planning!) of how you framed the eclipse event in the shot.. thanks!

    That's really great, Nick! A terrific way to combine an event with a long pinhole exposure.

    I kept getting told pinhole and nighttime doesn't work, boy were they wrong. Thanks for proving that.

    Yeah, pinhole and night works just fine with the right camera. My 4x5 wide angle is actually kind of a pain to use in broad daylight unless i'm using paper or lith film. It's just too fast.
    My WWPD shot is actually a night shot made with it.
