It arcs in the sky.

Unless you are on the equator....

Yes you are correct which I just learned this the other day, but was not thinking about when I posted my note above. But it is evident in the photo in question my answer was correct.

Does the moon arc thru the sky like this, or did you do that in PP?

DreDaze wrote in post #17731183 (external link)
i think what he was asking was more about if those shots were the natural line of the path of the moon, or was that done just to show a path meanwhile the actual shots would have been a lot closer together

considering the moon and landscapes were taken with two different lenses, i think it's all done in PP...if i understood his question right...either way i'm sure johnph can answer whatever he's asking

Yes it does arc in the sky where I am, but this is a representation of the arc, done in PP, rather than a actual shot of it, to get the full arc I would've lost it out of frame at 28mm. I did actually shoot the moon with a 200mm on a tracker at 8 minute intervals on a 550D, and at 100mm on a 5D3. The 100mm provided the most natural perspective on the 28mm landscape shot.

So make sure you continue to pet your toy and don't let it go cheap or easy!

I was wondering if there is a super nova or what that has caused such a brighness in Astro forum. Never could imagine its because Ron is back!
Welcome back pal and hope to see a lot of you here.
Don't forget to "Bee hive" as a lot of people here, like me, want to have the pleasure of your presence and your wisdom, here.
Again welcome back and forum is not the same without certain people, including you.


Thanks Samsen , yes I was taking time , thanks for the comments .

+1 I think Ron took time off to re-charge his "inner batteries", nice to see him posting again.

Here's my image for this thread
Lunar eclipse 9/27/2015 composite SE Michigan:

This is my 1st composite of the night, taken on fixed tripod, these are 2 minutes apart, 10:44pm - 11:06pm.
Canon 70D, 70-200mm L @ f2.8, ISO 3200, 1/15 sec each.
The faint "dots" are stars that showed up in the capture.

This is my 2nd composite of the night, taken on fixed tripod, these are 2 minutes apart, 11:10pm - 11:34pm.
Image is taken as leaving totality, so you can see the transition.
Canon 70D, 70-200mm L @ f2.8, ISO 800, 1/8 sec each.

Thanks mtbdudex , that recharge is a nice way of putting it ;) . I even stayed in the night of this event . I went out about every 30-45 mins to see what phase it was in but I never even turned my camera on . I've seen so many of these events , stayed up all night long imaging and done a lot of editing I decided this time I would just let others enjoy the thrill and I would just look at pictures as they get posted . BTW this is some excellent composites here . Very nice edits !

I've got into this discussion on Space.com facebook page, arc of the moon
https://www.facebook.c​om …276466/?type=1&​permPage=1 (external link)

This is the NASA APOD for Sept-29-2015 (external link), not mine, clearly the moon does not have such a severe arc, simply I'm just curious why your arc is so severe?
