Maximum Eclipse 28 September 2015
This was the moon as it passed through the darkest portion of the Earth shadow at 03:47. It was remarkably dark with the the Milky Way and shining over head and the Orion Nebulae visible to the south west like it was a Moonless night. A fantastic experience.
The Image was captured from my garden in Killygordon, Co. Donegal. I used a Celestron Onyx edf 80mm Telescope and a Canon 6D camera mounted on a Celestron C8N mount. The Exposure was 8sec, ISO 400, F5.
