Yes heard that it was going to be on. Always had interest in the moon and planetary events.

I tried some shots from Sydney, either the white part was overexposed trying to get the darker side and so on. But came up with a reasonable pic.

Partial eclipses are quite difficult to get a nice photo of due to how bright the lit part is. I took some photos but still on the camera.

The next eclipse in Dec should be better - so long as we get a clear evening.

yes i can not wait until the December i think 21st and hopefully it is going to be a clear night the hole way. does anyone know the time frame of when the eclipse will be visible in Eastern OZ at all?

Unfortunately the total phase of the eclipse will end about 10 minutes before the moon rises in Sydney that day, so by the time it gets dark enough to get photos it will be getting bright again.
