The blood moon total eclipse last night
I wasn't sure I was going top be able to see the eclipse because of the hill to the east, but it rose up at about when the eclipse went total. Not knowing what I was doing camera wise didn't help for the first 40 or so pretty blurry exposures. At the last minute, I realized I needed a shorter exposure speed, and needed to lock the mirror up & use a remote trigger. I figure I'll have the technique down in time for the next one in 2033.
They look better when you click on them. You can see the stars too.
