Nikon D800 with 300 mm f3.5 Nikkor Lens ISO 6000 1/20 sec exposure
Had 80% cloud cover, able to see eclipse thru clouds but the images were poor, then at just the right moment. the clouds parted by the moon and the most beautiful lunar eclipse, with Mars 10 degrees away appeared, only had 10 minutes before clouds returned, but the images were great! I believe I might be the only photographer in NC to get this image as the whole state was covered with clouds, I was lucky
