New year dawns with lunar eclipse

There was a partial lunar eclipse on December 31st 2009 – January 1st 2010. Though it  was a cloudy night on the eve of New Year, some parts of India observed partial lunar eclipse. The sky cleared a bit during prime time of the eclipse and I was able to take some photos at 2.40 AM from the terrace of my Chamarajpet home.

These pictures were taken on Nikon D60 with 70-300mm Tamron lens, with Velbon CF tripod. Some of the pictures were taken on shutter mode to avoid clouds in the picture. The photographs were later cropped and stitched to fit in single picture.

  1. Wow, those snaps are really awsome.
    Thanks for sharing.

    For people like us who were busy with other activities, your snaps make us not miss the event entirely.

    I hope to see some good snaps of the coming solar eclipse also!
