I got up early this morning to watch the lunar eclipse. In Denmark only partial eclipse was visible since the moon went down already at around 7:40 UTC where I live. Unfortunately, it was cloudy so I didn’t even see the partial eclipse. Too bad because it seems that my new Fuji HS10 camera with 30x optical zoom is quite well suited for taking photos of the moon without any telescope. I took this photo of the full moon yesterday evening while trying to find some proper settings for capturing the eclipse
Not bad for a 500€ camera, is it? More photos here. I got the camera about a week and I didn’t have much time to get acquainted with it so I expect the pictures will improve as time goes.
The camera has some pretty neat high speed video recording modes which was one of the reasons I bought it.
