Observations of the event

Images taken with a Canon A75 Powershot through my 8 inch SKyQuest. The digicam was attached onto the telescope using a simple device from Orion:) More to come!!!!

Pictures seen on Spaceweather.com @ October 27/28, 2004 page 4


ISO 400 15" f2.8 This was taken just as the eclipse started. Notice how bright the sky was.

A faint blue was noticed at this point. 
In this picture you can see how dark it got. A passing car highlighted the tree a little and left light trails on the road.  The colors continued to be quite impressive here.
Big round red Total Eclipsed moon.  The milky way at this point, was very easy to see. The skies had become quite dark.
Skies still very dark...awesome view!
