October 27, 2004 Lunar Eclipse
Beginning of Eclipse
The Moon half shadowed
Imaged using a Nikon CP 950 through an 8" F/6 dobsonian at 48X.
Unfortunately, the clouds and sleep overcame the event prior to totality.
The image to the left is a composte of two images; one is of the nearly
fully illuminated moon and the other is the half shadowed moon.
