Lunar Eclipse

Last night there was a lunar eclipse, which I was lucky enough to be able to photograph through my telescope. I was a bit concerned that the weather wouldn’t hold, but the only problem I had was significant dewing in the run up to midnight.

Anyway, I combined the images into a single montage, showing the Moon before the eclipse, then in two stages of partial eclipse, and finally in total eclipse. The orange-red colour of the Moon in the latter two stages was really striking, I think you’ll agree.
