A total Lunar eclipse

Postby Onslow » Wed Dec 24, 2014 9:32 am

On the 8th of October this year a total lunar eclipse happened. I managed to get some images of the moon as it slowly disappeared and decided a composite was the best way to display them. Canon 5Dmk2 with anCanon EF 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM lens with a 2x tele extender. This was shot unguided and the images had various exposure times.

Very neat. You could use it for a clock face and have one made. :)
