need a tripod to take such shots??? Generally, what's the exposure setting used?

yeah. cos less light is reflected from its surface due it entering earth's shadows. which means your exposures will also have to be lenghtened. if you're shooting from a fixed tripod, problem...

uh. it's not even the eclipse yet. just wait till then, you'll find the exposure timing longer, longer and longer.

oh yeah, when it gets lower and lower to the horizon the atmosphere might distort it so don't be surprised if it doesn't look as sharp as it's at the zenith..
