Solar and lunar eclipse

Print PDF

We would like to encourage everybody to experiment with an amateur photography!

Below you can find pictures of solar and lunar eclipse taken on the 4th of January 2011 and on the 15th June 2011 with a digital Kodak DX7590 camera. No tripod was used. The optical zoom was set to 10 and the digital one to 3.

The solar eclipse image was taken with the use of a simple filter placed in front of the objective. The filter was made from a piece of unprocessed color negative 35 mm Kodak film (thus the brownish background).

The lunar eclipse image was taken with the camera based on a window sill.
