Description

I recently re-discovered this beautiful depiction of a Lunar eclipse in some old image files.

I call this my 'Pale Red Dot' - a re-interpretation of Carl Sagan's famous image, the 'Pale Blue Dot', but taken with a much smaller telescope, and much closer to home, not realising I'd take this almost identical image 5,020 days later.

Please excuse the elongated background stars - when I took this 2-second exposure, it never occurred to me that walking around on a wooden deck might shake the camera - mark that up to experience.

Description: I brightened the background stars very slightly to enhance the Moon's context, giving the image more depth.
