Here's a collage of the moon passing through the Earth's shadow.  I have been wanting to shoot a complete lunar eclipse timelapse sequence completely in HDR for awhile.  Magic Lantern "Software" allowed me to take 7 bracketed 2-stop exposures every 70sec.  Afterwards, the final HDR images of every 7 exposure set was combined in Photoshop.  Each phase in the collage represents an image taken every 7 minutes going from right to left.  I guess 7 was the magic number this night.  The collage represents about a hour before and after totality.  It sort of reminds me of a glowing ceramic rod that has been heated considerably.  I'm still working on a better version of an HDR lunar eclipse time lapse I made for an outreach event last weekend.  

 

Taken with a Canon 600d mounted on a SV90 telescope.

Very nicely presented.  I like the way the Earth's shadow is shown.
