Can photo stacking be used for this one or do we have to use a long exposure setting to get multiple phases of the eclipse?

There's no flag on this one allowing time-lapse photography, so that's a no-go.

I'm sorry. I don't understand. Can we take multiple pictures with the camera in the same position but the moon moving and then Stack the pictures?

There are other ways of doing this with the shutter open for an hour but stacking would be easier.

If you're talking about producing the sort of image that shows a "string of moons" in various phases of the eclipse by taking multiple, separate exposures, then no; that's a time-lapse image. It can be done "legally" by leaving the shutter open and removing a cover over the lens periodically to expose the moon as it travels across the sky.

Asking for a friend...

Sooo can you stitch pictures together? Runs for cover!

You can stitch neighboring images to create a panoramic image of a single scene.

Now that is a challenge!

Can I ask a friend of mine in America to take a photo and then send it to me down under for me to enter, talk about discrimination :-)

If any of your news services cover it you can take a picture of it on your TV screen as long as you include the frame to make it clear that it's not your original image. Most of North America (including where I am) is cloud-covered now -- you may still have the "best" image of the Moon itself -- likely better than your American friend ... :-)

Ha too funny that was going to actually be my first request... I might just give that a go.
So when you say that I need to include the frame, is that in the post edited version also?

Yes, it has to be "obvious" that you are photographing "someone else's" artwork. I've run afoul of this rule myself, so be careful ... :-)

That is a recipe for disaster. Might give this one a miss and wait until the real thing happens down under.

Thanks anyway.

That would be May 26, 2021. Expect rain.
