There are many first times. And the lunar eclipse event is one of them for me. I've attempted couple of times on the moon with Nikkor 200-500/5.6 and 28-300/3.5-5.6 lenses. Well, you know, the average stuff.

This time is more "formal" LOL - Lunar tracking (RA+Dec) with BabyQ. The weather was not that great last night. There was a touch of cloud in front of the moon and gave me big headache to make the auto focus working. I accepted what it was.

Post processing is pretty traditional - DXO to bring up the dim stars, final touch up in Photoshop. I like the rich star field when the moon is red!

Not sure if I want to do it again though... :)
