Super Blood Moon
At approximately 8:00 p.m. on September 27, 2015 , a rare celestial occurrence began, a total lunar eclipse of a super moon. I went out into the country, away from Omaha's city light pollution, to capture this rare event with two cameras ready. This image is actually five images combined using Photoshop Elements software. Each picture was taken approximately one minute apart, except for the second shot which was taken around half a minute after the first.
I used the longest focal length lens I own (Pentax DA150-450) set to 450mm and connected to a 1.4x teleconverter, resulting in telephoto length of 630mm. Because of the magnification and the rate of movement of the moon through the sky due to the earth's rotation, it only took around five minutes for the moon to move from the lower left corner of the viewfinder to nearly disappearing on the upper right.
