    No details yet... place still to be determined by consensus suggestions are welcome wherever is the most convenient for most of the people coming and of course we are weather dependent so i guess everything will be finalized a day or two before the event

    Dudes the eclipse happens at moonset, so you will need a place with clear view of the western horizon. Focal length of 2000mm will be just enough to frame the entire moon on 35mm film. 200mm with 100% crop may be ok, but dont expect to see much details on the moon.

    Just wondering..is there any possible place to catch it from the east if it's pointing to the western hemisphere? Would be the same location like a sunset? (ie Punggol Beach)
    I would like to shoot this but being a work day..maybe just go out for 1 hour and shoot and i live in the east so…need to find an eastern location to shoot…Pasir Ris Beach? Punggol Beach? Anyone knows?
