Lunar Eclipse Series

I set up on the front lawn when the moon reached over the tree that had been blocking its early rise. About 7:30 it was visible and half in shadow. The whole series ran about 2 hours, with me playing around with exposure and, to my great delight, discovering a 10 second exposure aimed at the black night sky that only held, to my naked eyes, one constellation, revealed countless stars peeking back.

Once the eclipse was finishing and the edge began to glow white again, the long exposure couldn't capture the moon and the stars without blowing out the moon, but during the total eclipse, it produced a few really nice shots.
