Lunar Eclipse Occultation

Nikon D7000 DSLR. Meade 5000 127mm refractor. Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 mount.

Being able to see the Andromeda Galaxy and the Persius Double Cluster as naked eye objects during a full moon was an unforgettable experience. I watched the moon occult the star just above it and took this photograph a few minutes later.
