Blood Moon

Blood Moon from the Lunar Eclipse

I set the alarm to wake me up as the eclipse was peaking and shot about 350 or so images.  It was so nice out, I just stayed in the back yard , selected four shots for this composite, and did all the editing in the moonlight.

The Blood Moon was long gone by that point, but it was still a unique experience editing in the dark (really makes you appreciate those backlit keys!)

Shot with a Canon 5DMKII on a 10″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope at f/10.
