I have looked through all the negatives I obtained during the recent lunar eclipse and assembled this montage from photos taken from before the beginning to mid-totality. All were taken at prime focus through my 8-inch Celestron EdgeHD Schmidt-Cassegrain, and exposures ranged from 1/250th of a second to 60 seconds during the middle of totality. After scanning the film with my Canon scanner, the necessary adjustments and compilation into this composite was accomplished with Photoshop.

I used Fujicolor Superia-Xtra 400 speed color negative film. I have long preferred Fuji color film over Kodak's.

Very nice images!  Well done. Neat to see film shots of the moon.

Very nice indeed! Much nicer than my feeble effort using a DSLR and a 200mm lens out of a window. (I was too chicken to stand out in the -8F cold. My concern was not for myself - I'm Canadian and we laugh at such temperatures - but for my camera, which is only rated down to -10C or 14F.) Link is here but I won't embed the image because it is OT for this forum.

Nicely exposed, but I wouldn't have been able to get my camera to work at -8 F, let alone my hands. Pretty darn good, considering what you had to work with.
