The total lunar eclipse is visible just after sunset.

The eclipse sequence ( 10 Dec 2011 - Singapore Time) is as shown:


7.31 pm - Start of Penumbra Eclipse.
8.45 pm - Start of Umbra Partial Phase.
10.05 pm - Start of Total Eclipse.
10.31 pm - Maximum Eclipse.
10.57 pm - End of Total Eclipse.
12.18 am - End of Umbra Partial Eclipse.
1.31 am - End of Penumbra Eclipse.

TASOS will hold the Total Lunar Eclipse Observation at Labrador Park (at the Berlayer Beacon facing Sentosa). The observation will start from 7.45pm and end about midnight. TASOS will setup telescopes and binoculars for the eclipse observation. All are welcome.

I've seen people use a 300mm with a x1.4tc and up. Or mirror lens. Cheaper. No prob.

Any indication of interest who from here is going?

just a few more info that might be helpful:

on 10 Dec 11:
Moonrise Time : 6:48pm
Direction : East North East (67.5deg Azimuth)

and using LunaSolCal Mobile app to get the altitude of the moon (from horizon) at the following time (do correct me if any of the info is wrong), good to plan for location to shoot, also good for planning your composition if you are shooting timelapse:

(Altitude, Azimuth, Time)
9.8, 67.3, 7.31 pm - Start of Penumbra Eclipse.
26.1, 65.2, 8.45 pm - Start of Umbra Partial Phase.
43.3, 59.3, 10.05 pm - Start of Total Eclipse.
48.6, 55.9, 10.31 pm - Maximum Eclipse.
53.6, 51.4, 10.57 pm - End of Total Eclipse.
66.1, 24.9, 12.18 am - End of Umbra Partial Eclipse.
67.4, 343.1, 1.31 am - End of Penumbra Eclipse.

in short, you need to have an unblocked view of sky from East to North, from about 10deg to 70 deg up from horizon to see the whole lunar eclipse. :bsmilie::bsmilie:

just hope that we get a nice clear sky that evening! :angel::angel:

the moon is full on 10th dec , probelm is the weather must be friendly also...if its extremely cloudy or about to rain...the clouds will block the moon.

By the way , there is another separate group of astronomy hobbyists are heading to fullerton area just fyi,

Is there likely to be a nice full moon on 10 Dec?
total lunar eclipse can only occur on day with full moon, reason is because moon, earth and sun need to be aligned together, and that is only possible on day of full moon. :)
