    The moon in eclipse though will be much darker, IDK.

    With negative roll film I'd start by opening up maybe 4-stops from sunny 16 to start and then bracket by opening another 2-stops each for another 3 frames from there.

    DOF isn't typically an issue because we are normally way past the hyper focal distance for most any lens at any aperture, unless you are attached to a telescope. So I'd focus at infinity and set aperture wide open because the moon is in motion, time is a real issue.
    ahhh there you go .. FULL moon at sunny16

    The full moon at "moony 11" has worked for me (f:11 at 1/ISO), but the eclipsed moon will be much darker of course. If you're shooting it as a series, the trick will be to keep eclipsed moon visible without overexposing the illuminated moon.

    Ralph, there is a world of difference (pun intended) between the sunlit moon and when the moon is in the Earth's shadow. Everything you'd want to know and more here: http://www.mreclipse.com/LEphoto/LEphoto.html The information is quite good. The last eclipse I photographed using those exposure recommendations came out perfect.

    I thought that AA's Moonrise negative was very difficult to print.

    Here is some more info: http://www.hcc.commnet.edu/artmuseum.../moonrise.html

    I wish that this was easier

    I just wanted to figure out what time that this is happening from the following: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/...2014Apr15T.pdf

    I guess that I"ll have to find my old HP calculator...
    And brush up on my Calculus...
    And go back to college for a couple more years...

    Maybe I could just try to Google up "Eclipses for Dummies".
