November 30, 2020 Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

 Last November 30, Both me and my son brought our camera and lens to try to image the penumbral lunar eclipse. Si ce we had an errand in Clark, we brought along our rig just to be sure we would be able to image the event along the way and we saw the Moon rising up to the cloudy eastern horizon at around 6:00pm PST (Philippine Standard Time +8 GMT)

I use my Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera with Canon EF100-400mm f4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f8 on Vixen Porta II mount while my son uses Canon EOS 500D DSLR with Canon EFS 55-250mm on sturdy tripod.

The Moon had already passed the maximum penumbral 83% already which happened at around 5:43pm but we were still fortunate to capture it around 6:00pm till end of the eclipse at 7:53pm before the sky got totally clouded out after the event.

Below is an image of the Penumbral Lunar eclipse by my son. 

We were on the road when the eclipse happened and we managed to take some photos of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse at a gas station nearby. This is the photo I got that is the closest to the maximum as we got clouded out in the first few minutes. The shading is very subtle (Top left) but still an eclipse nonetheless.
