Total Lunar Eclipse!

Despite a fairly cloudy sky here in Adelaide, it gradually cleared to provide a nice view of tonight’s total lunar eclipse.

I took more than 150 images with my recently purchased Canon 1100D DSLR, a few of these from a tripod with a 100mm f2.0 lens. Most, like this one were taken with the 1100D through my LX-90 8″ SCT scope at prime focus.

I’ll post more when I’ve had the chance to take a closer look.

See IceInSpace for some more of my images.
