Total Lunar Eclipse from Adelaide

Adelaide was largely clouded out for the eclipse but the cloud thinned at times well enough to get some reasonable images, especially after midnight. Taking more than 100 images also helped.

I used a Canon 1100D at the prime focus of my 8″ Schmidt-Cassegrain Alt-Az (Meade LX-90) telescope.

Here are some images I thought were interesting enough to show. These are straight off the camera with no processing except RAW to JPEG conversion.

Pre-totality umbral shadow through cloud. ISO 100, 1/10 second.

Totality. ISO 800, 2 seconds.

Not long before end of totality. ISO 800, 2 seconds.

Soon after end of totality. ISO 800, 1 second.
