Meade LX50 10-inch SCT with a f/6.3 focal reducer. Canon XS DSLR, ISO800, 10 second exposure.
Clouds were a real problem in Southeastern Pennsylvania. A 5 minute clearing window developed around 10:30pm EDT and I was abe to image a very dark lunar eclipse. Possibly caused by the Supermoon near perigee, this was one of the darkest lunar eclipses that I have ever observed.
