Hi,

Not sure how many of you are in the right place. Obvious Europe and Africa will see nothing. But large pasrts of the americas and asia will get a partial eclipse, with west coast of north America and east coast of Australia getting the full show.



But certainly east coast aussies should be getting their cameras out Tuesday night. Different times elsewhere.

Here is some local info for people in my timezone (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

Hi,
but we cannot see this in Europe

With the FZ20 only mounted on tripod, you can do this:

So.... did anyone catch the eclipse? I checked the moonset for my location (NYC) and it was 6:21am. I couldn't wait up. At about 3:30am I looked out but the moon was just bright and almost full. I am curious to see pics if anyone has....

I am bitterly disappointed, weather was cloudy all evening, got one shot off in a cloud break at full eclipse but it was ordinary as my shutter speed ended up being so slow I got a lot of moon movement. By the time I had dialled in a higher ISO speed to get a faster shutter the clouds came back and stayed until I gave up at 9:30pm and I have nothing. I'll have to wait till 2011.
