I stayed up to watch the eclipse of the moon and took some shots as it progressed. The first image is the full moon about an hour before the eclipse began. From past experience I set my camera to manual mode, spot metering and varied the shutter speed (first image 1/640 sec, last 8 sec). I went out about every ten minutes (it was cold and windy) during the eclipse and took four shots each time. For the last set I stayed out about 20 minutes. Near the end of the sequence shown light clouds began to obscure the moon (and I was getting sleepy) so I did not capture the exit from eclipse. From about fifty images, I selected these, cropped them and use PhotoShop Elements to create this image. No enhancements were done to the moon images.
Added January 7, 2011: NASA has posted some great images of the December lunar eclipse and the January partial solar eclipse. Here are the links:
