Ooh, what a frigidly cold night! Camera batteries don't like the cold one bit. Last total lunar eclipse until December, 2010!

We were plagued by intermittent cloud cover for the first half & pretty much all of totality. Finally cleared up just as the moon emerged from the earths shadow. Colin joined me out in the cold, and between the two of us we had four cameras & a crappy telescope.

I had hoped to capture a succession of wide-angle shots tracking the position of the moon across the sky throughout the entire process, but the cloud cover screwed up that idea. This is a composite of 3 shots.
