Meade LX50 10" SCT w/ an f/6.3 focal reducer. Used a Canon XS 10.1MP DSLR. 10 sec exposure, ISO200, White Balance set to Sunny Day.
Very stunning Total Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice. This eclipse reminded me very much of the previous eclipse visible nearly 3 years ago on February 2008. It was definitely a brighter eclipse with the Moon nicely pictured amongst the bright stars of Winter.
