Results of Blood Moon 10.7-8.2014

Welcome back!

     Did you all catch up on your sleep? Even with it being almost two weeks since it's happening, I still haven't caught up. What I'm referring to is the Blood Moon that happened Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning (October 7-8). I stayed up from 2-4:30 watching the moon. With these results:

     I think these shots were worth staying up for. But I know what most of you are thinking, "How did you get those shots?" Well calm down and I'll tell you.

     The DSLR I used was my trusty T1i. Yes, the T1i. Goes to show that the less expensive DSLR's (from almost 6 years ago) can still produce amazing images. Shutter Speed for the one up top was 1 / 30 at ISO 100 and f/6.3 with the Canon FD 300mm f/4. The bottom one was at 1", ISO 400, at f/5.6 also with the Canon FD 300mm f/4. The adapter I used to link the FD lens to the EF mount was my Fotodiox Canon FD-EF Adapter (Link to my review here), and it's amazingly sharp. Just goes to show that you don't need the best gear to take an amazing shot.

     That's it for now! Hoped you guys (and girls) liked the photos, and I plan on seeing you next week. ¬°Adios!
