Lunar Eclipse on December 10, 2011


I was having a cold and figured I rather stay inside than become even more sick by going outside and observing the lunar eclipse. But then I woke up at 5:30am and looked out of the window and saw a beautiful full moon. Thus, I decided to observe the spectacle from inside through the window. I mounted my Canon 300D with a Sigma Zoom lens on a photographic tripod and took this image (from inside through the closed window). This is a stack of 14 images (effective focal length 100mm, each exposure 1/128, 1/60s or 1/30s, ISA 100). Unfortunately, there were trees in the way and I could not get clean shoots at the more eclipsed phases. But still a nice picture. Taken December 10, 2011.
