It’s been a while since I photographed a lunar eclipse; the last one was in December 2010 and the pictures are here: Lunar Eclipse. That one reached totality at dawn but this one was in the early hours of the morning against a dark sky. I took pictures from 3am until 3:20 and this is the last of the sequence. The moon is only just into the Earth’s shadow and consequently, there’s still a brighter area on the disk.
Picture was taken with a Canon 100D and 75-300mm zoom. Exposure time was 3 seconds.
