    My astro friends and I will be observing this eclipse near Bishan Park McDonald's. Will we be bringing our telescopes as usual for stargazing and sharing the views with the public.

    Come join us with your family and friends if you are interested. Free of charge of course.

    Great time to practice your night shooting skills. Can be quite challenging to get good exposures as Moon goes from total eclipse to bright full Moon again.

    Good luck and have fun shooting!

    I am not an astrophotographer. Hope others can help answer your question. In the meantime, you may find this article useful:

    Update (6 Apr 2015):

    Heavy rain on eclipse day at around 6pm+. By 8pm no rain but still cloudy. Manage to see Moon around 8:30pm till all the way full moon again.

    Huge turnout even when the skies were still totally clouded!

    Here are some event pics of the event shot hastily with a handheld compact camera:









    More photos in my blog when I have the time to blog about it.
