August 7-8, 2017 Partial Lunar Eclipse
After a short rainfall in the early evening, the sky cleared up for all to observe the Partial Lunar Eclipse from start to end. The Moon enters the penumbral shadow at 11:50pm Philippine Standard Time (PST)just before midnight and it enters into the umbral shadow at 1:3am PST. Maximum eclipse of 25% occurred at 2:21 am PST. It then later exit the umbral shadow at 3:18am PST. The Moon finally exits the penumbral shadow at 4:50 am PST. I use my trusty Canon EOS 500D DSLR on Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/11 mounted on Celestron Nexstar mount.
