Sunday, May 15th is set to deliver a fantastic total lunar eclipse visible across the US. This will be well timed for evening viewing, with max totality just after midnight on the east coast, and 9:PM on the west coast.
Here in Denver, the umbral eclipse will start at 8:27 pm, with totality starting at 9:29 pm. Maximum totality is at 10:11 pm, where the Moon will appear its deepest red under the Earth's umbral shadow. (The Moon will already be in the penumbral partial eclipse as it rises.)

iOptron is introducing their first harmonic drive mount, weighing just 8.15 lbs for the mount head, and able to carry up to 29 lbs with no counterweight needed! We expect the HEM27 and HEM27EC to make fantastic light weight AP mounts, and can't wait to test them out!
