How extraordinary!! I just got an e-mail from a book publisher friend who had just received a nasty e-mail from a Photo Library wanting payment for an image of the Pleiades shown on the cover of one of his books. Now as I had provided the publisher with the Pleiades image I must admit was a bit taken aback by this. However – looking very closely at the Photo Library image – it was clear to me that it wasn’t even my image!!! So I logged on to the Photo Library’s site to have a closer look at their image – and – it is in fact a Robert Gendler image of the Pleiades!!! So this Photo Library just tried to extort £496 out of a totally innocent publisher who had done everything by the book!! I told him to sue the bastards – I really hope he does 🙂

Going back to 28th September we had the most amazing total Lunar eclipse, this image captured using a Canon 5D MkII on a TS80 triplet at f#6 all sitting on a tripod, shows pre-totality, totality, and post totality.  And yes it really was VERY red 🙂
