Lunar Odyssey

I’d call it Blood Moon Alpha.

Timelapse of the Lunar Eclipse that took place April 15th 2014. Shot on 2 5D Mark III cameras using Canon lenses and a RED Epic with a 300-1200mm Canon Century zoom lens that is used on IMAX cameras. Motion control was done using an eMotimo TB3 and the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero track.

Moon Saturn Occultation – 22 Feb 2014

Captured from Perth, Western Australia, just on dawn, by Colin Legg.

Equipment: Celestron C8, f/10, prime focus. Canon 5D2, running Magic Lantern RAW video firmware in 3x crop mode @ 1880 x 1056 resolution. 1/60 sec exposure, ISO 200, 10 fps.

What does this have to do with post production? The short answer is the radius of the moon is 1,080 miles, and maximum resolution of high-def video for television broadcast is 1,080 pixels.

Coincidence? No such thing.

What about Saturn? We’ll get back to that one later.
