Lunar Eclipse

After the weather playing up all day, the sky cleared to an inky black and transparent view, just perfect for the Lunar eclipse. I set up in my back garden and awaited the event

Despite the Lunar eclipse looking great by eye, I still hadnt quite got to grips with the scope, mostly because the ETX90is f/13 and I also did not have a focal reducer,so trying to find the moon when its dark against a dark sky meant that…err… I lost it :). So, I just sat there and watched the whole event. It was glorious, the moon turned more and more coppery red, with a whiteish area.

I did get some images before and after the event. All images taken with ETX90EC+, Meade LPI, post processed in Registax v4
