i don't feel like such a dope now :p
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.
what did AAdo for moonrise over Hernandez again?
Here is some more info: http://www.hcc.commnet.edu/artmuseum.../moonrise.html
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".
