Tripod mounted Canon XTi with Canon 70mm-200mm f/4 at 200mm. Mirror lockup and cable release.
Shots were taken a few seconds apart. One exposure for sunlit side of moon, one exposure for umbra. This goes to show how amazing the human eye is. With binoculars, both sides can be seen at the same time. With a camera, exposure varied by factor of 150x to show both sides.
