Lunar eclipse

Tuesday morning was bright and clear (and minus 9C) when I left the house at 06:30 to walk to the top of the lane. As I setup the camera and tripod, the Earth’s shadow was just starting to take the first bite out of the lunar disk. Sticking mainly with the Canon 75-300 zoom I took pictures until the moon faded into the dawn sky as it reached totality. At 07:30 I took this wider field image.

Camera: Canon 350D
Lens: Canon 75-300 zoom @ 125mm f/4.5
ISO: 400, 1/3 sec
