Here is a montage of the best images I captured during the last half of the lunar eclipse on September 27-28, 2015. It’s amazing I was able to observe this much given the persistent cloud cover that night. It was tricky to determine the correct exposure while it changed dramatically during brief windows through the clouds. Somehow I managed to pull off enough images to make this sequence. For that, I am thankful.

Ok, moon. You've had your get lost so I can go back to dark sky imaging!
