Lunar Eclipse April 2014

I hope you all had a chance to see the lunar eclipse in person. It was pretty amazing here in Arizona. If you did miss the show, check out these photos of mine. I used pretty simple equipment, a tripod, wired remote, Canon EOS Rebel XSi and Canon 70-200mm f/4 L EF IS (USM). I shot everything at 200mm and used autofocus.

Next time I hope to use a longer lens or extender. I did have to really crop these images to remove a lot of the inky blackness of space.

Have Fun,
Jeff

Full eclipse. I  didn’t crop this or the next one as close as I could because I like the star in the bottom right.
1 second at f4, ISO 100 (Don’t expose for more than 1 second or the Earth’s rotation will blur the moon.)

April Computer Wallpaper Is Ready

I just put up the computer wallpaper for April. It shows blossoms on a Saguaro Cactus (Carnegiea gigantea) about to be visited by a honey bee (Apis mellifera). This Saguaro was on the road to Bumblebee, Arizona. This is also the area where I saw my first rattlesnake.

Head on over and get your copy at www.jeffcolburn.com/wallpaper.html

Have Fun,

I’ll be on TV – Barry’d Treasure

As some of you may remember, I told you that I would probably be in one of Barry Weiss’ episodes of Barry’d Treasure.

Well, the show has been scheduled. Barry’d Treasure will premier on March 18th, 10:00/9:00 central on A&E. I don’t know what episode I’ll be in, but it will be when they visit Jerome, Arizona.

Have Fun,
Jeff
