Default Longest Lunar Eclipse of Century. Great photography opportunity

Longest total lunar eclipse of the century is to occur soon, on Friday July 27, when the super moon is going to be hidden under earths shadow to display a mesmerizing Red Moon or Blood moon that is going to last long (Total eclipse is visible, depending on your location and for best viewers, its going to last 103 minutes! As entire eclipse will be visible to many of our photographers, you may have a great opportunity of bring your gears out and have a go on this wonderful celestial event. Considering its summer in upper hemisphere, a good chance of non cloudy, clear night exist, unless... but lets keep the fingers crossed. Even if not taking the pictures, don't miss this unique opportunity to enjoy the night, best in company of friends and love ones. Its going to be memorable. Regrettably its going to be day time in USA and no part of eclipse visible! See the map for your opportunity and planning.

Its coming so Are You Ready?
Do you know enough technique to capture the moon in general and then the difficult one, The Full Red Moon of Total Eclipse?
This tutorial might help the beginners and does a good job in explaining a lot of information on how to shoot moon, made by my favorite photographer, Tony Northrup

LINK to YouTube Free tutorial

Enjoy.

Enjoy.
Sorry can't stand him! But I could perhaps watch his wife. The moon will be totally eclipsed when it rises here, but at least it's at a sociable time & still has a while to go. Shooting a normal full moon is dead easy compared to the totally eclipsed version, which is something like 10 stops dimmer.
