Details:
Despite gathering cloud it was possible to obtain twelve snapshots at about ten minute intervals for all but one portion of the partial lunar eclipse of 07 July from 17.25 to 19.29 UT (19.25 to 21.29 LT). These were overlaid, registered and rotated slightly to remove the apparent rotation of the rising Moon to produce an animation which shows how the Earth’s shadow traversed the right hand side from bottom to top (as viewed from Mutare) and obscured a maximum of 25 percent of the surface at greatest eclipse. This is also illustrated by the three stills taken at 17.25 UT shortly after the beginning, at 18.16 near the middle and at 19.19 close to the end of the umbral phase. The camera used was a tripod-mounted Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 compact camera in sunset scene mode and 1500mm optical zoom setting.
