Here's my take on the eclipse last night.

 

Orion Short Tube 80

Celestron Nexstar SE Mount

Canon T1i

Photoshop CS4 for compositing

 

It was so cold (-6 windchill) I decided to just move the entire setup in and out of the house every 20-30 minutes to take a few shots. So there was no tracking.Lunar Eclipse Composite LO.jpg

As you can see I rotated the before phase to make a more pleasing composition ( pleasing to me anyways).

The artifacts at the bottom of the total phase are from compressing the file down for this post.

Great pics! You, like me, did the in/out method. I set a timer for 15 mins and went out to take another shot. So cold my battery kept dying so I would have to bring it in during the pauses to recharge it.
