I posted my DSLR images soon after the lunar eclipse yesterday and made a few comments about the eclipse. I’m following them up today with some of the images I simultaneously took through my telescope. The main picture above shows the edge of the Moon immediately after totality ended.
The image gallery below shows the sequence leading up to totality.
I packed up without witnessing the waning eclipse, to spend the rest of the evening singing happy birthday to my Bride.
Thanks for reading!
