Blood Moon Maximum Eclipse


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount & Equinox 80mm refractor & Atik 320e colour camera.

Image at maximum eclipse at 03:47 BST. Southern edge of moon brighter as predicted.

Dim but clearly visible red colour with the naked eye. Amazing sight surrounded by bright stars.

Excellent visibility and not single cloud in the sky. Perfect conditions.

I’ll get back to my Collage processing. I’ll have it finished today.

12 second exposures. Didn’t have the field of view for the whole disk. So did a two picture mosaic of ten images each.
