Partial Lunar Eclipse Photos

Denise was able to take some pictures of the partial lunar eclipse last night using our Canon 400mm telephoto lens (hand held) while I was leading a star gazing group on board the Paul Gauguin in French Polynesia. We had good views through thin clouds although the images do not show it.

Now we are looking forward to seeing the Transit of Venus tomorrow morning. Weather is looking questionable however I am confident we will see it through holes in the clouds.
