Eclipsing

A photo from last night's lunar eclipse. I forgot it was happening until Twitter reminded me. We had to go hunting for it since there was no view from our house due to a hill + trees. By the time we found a good spot, it was well into the unveiling.

This was a composite of two images. I took a bunch of different exposures to capture all the details without half being overexposed or underexposed. I wasn't able to get the shadow as detailed as I would have liked due to the silly earth rotating fast enough to blur everything over a couple seconds of exposure. Normally I use something like Photomatrix to combine the images, but it was having issues aligning, so I had to old school combine in Photoshop. In the end, I was pretty pleased with how well it turned out. Looks like I'll get to try again January 20th, 2019, at 9:12PM assuming I've living in the same place. :)
