Digital camera at 50mm mounted on a guide telescope. Multiple exposures during the whole eclipse.
Description
The goal was to show in a picture how a lunar eclipse looks to the naked eye, and how small the Earth shadow is compared to the whole sky. To get this I mounted a digital camera (focal length aprox 50mm) on a guide telescope and took multiple exposures during the eclipse. Besides the picture is fixed to show Leo and Saturn (right-up corner) at the same time.
