Lunar Eclipse, December 10, 2011

Lunar Eclipse, 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). The eclipse started from the top (a little to the left, ca. 11 o'clock). Through binoculars the eclipse was very prominent and visible. 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.
