Kodak 6490 blood-red moon shots

  1. Can anyone advise on the best way to set up a 6490 to get some pictures of
    the blood-red moon tonight?

    Because there will be a lunar eclipse tonight, and the Earth's
    atmosphere will tint the moon red ;) This may be a good night to take
    Moon photos, more if you live in the eclipse region ;)

    Best regards.

    Seriously, that's what they always say, but it only get somewhat light
    brownish gray.

    And he'll need a lens with a focal length of at least 1000mm (35mm
    equiv) to get anything worth having.

  8. Nice in comparison to the pictures my 6490 took :((

    The new 6440 I had rigged up to a scope packed in about 5 minutes before the
    eclipse and has refused to work since!!

    The following URL shows a couple of full moon shots taken with a DX 6490
    last night (May 4, 2004). Since I am in North America, no blood red moon.
    See the Exif data for shot details. It was just a bit hazy, so the pics
    aren't as sharp as they might have been.
