Description

Observing the Total Lunar eclipse of Jan 20-21, 2019 from Montauk Point, NY with total phases occurring in the middle of the night at high altitude above horizon (almost +70 deg.), making a perfect display of the surrounding star field (it was an exceptionally dark total lunar eclipse, with very reach colors during totality). The most prominent nearby object to the Moon is M44 open cluster less than 7 deg. away.

Some intermittent fast moving clouds were present during the night as featured in the image, leaving enough openings to see clearly through them.

Camera on tripod, a single f=4.7mm (24mm in 35mm equivalent) f/2.2 ISO250 8sec exposure.
