A cold and very windy night. I was observing the eclipse through binoculars, and it was very beautiful. In processing, I tried to mimic the color and intensity of the eclipsed moon vs. the background stars that I was seeing through the binoculars the other night. The stars and moon were processed separately and then recombined, but from the same forty 1-sec. frames.
