Partial Eclipse of the Moon Tonight (June 4, 2012)

Partial eclipse of the moon tonight, June 4, 2012, 6 pm to 8 pm (eclipse maximum at 7 pm). Still hoping for clear skies… Visible anywhere in the Philippines, just wait for the already-eclipsed moon rising in the east :)

Total Lunar Eclipse (December 10, 2011)

The image shows a fully-eclipsed moon during totality. Note that only during a total lunar eclipse that the very faint stars surrounding the full moon become visible. Image taken from the Seven Suites Hotel Observatory, Philippines, using a 4-inch refracting telescope and a DSLR at ISO 1600, 2-second exposure. This photo got featured in Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day (AAPOD).

Also on a piggy-back setup is a Canon S3 IS for wide-field shots of the eclipse. The image below shows the sky condition in Antipolo during eclipse maximum. Pleiades and Taurus are clearly visible in this photo. ISO 800, 15-sec exposure
