Partial Lunar Eclipse


We set an early alarm to wake up and see this morning's partial lunar eclipse.

Time of maximum eclipse was just after 4am. The edge of earth's shadow made a soft, curved line on the surface of the moon.

This was our best photo of the eclipse. It was "digi-scoped" by holding our digital camera to the eyepiece of our field telescope (25x).

No filter needed to view this one...
