GIMPed Lunar Eclipse
We got to watch the first part of tonights Lunar Eclipse before the clouds moved in (thanks Murphy!) just before the start of the total phase. Anyway, this is a combination of two photos taken in quick succession at 70mm focal length and f/8, ISO 100. The first was a 5 second exposure that was exposed for the UofA campus, the 2nd was a 1/100 second exposure to get the exposure of the Moon itself just after first contact of the Umbra. And if you look just above the trees, the star there is actually the planet Saturn.
