23 March 97 Lunar Eclipse

23 March 1997 Partial Lunar Eclipse

Here are three shots of the partial Lunar eclipse of 23 March 1997. I used a Tasco 2.4 inch telescope for the photos (700mm F11.7). Film was Kodak Royal Gold 400, using a Pentax K1000 camera. Exposures were 1/500, 1/500 and 1/250 sec respectively. I couldn't get the whole eclipse since (of course) a "mysterious" cloud bank appeared out of nowhere and obscured the Moon at time of maximum eclipse!
