    Hope to go... but no car, MRT and bus not operating that early... must take Taxi... but I am a cheapskate... so I think I will pass and try to shoot from home, if cannot, then forget it. Hahahaha.

    from the location that you want to shoot, do the following:
    At about 1040 hrs. on 12/6/2011 stand on the spot where you want to photo the moon. with your back to the sun look in the direction of your shadow look up and estimate the same angle (height of the sun). That is where the moon will be on the night of full eclipse at 03:22:1 at 04:12 :6 the middle of eclipse.
    Hope this helps.

    Well made a few observations of my own and at around 2am, my block top floor has a full view! SWW general direction. Bukit Panjang here.

    I only wish for the clouds to clear away, its been realli cloudy and blocking the full view of the moon most of the time.

    Even if you have no long lens you can still do something like this
