I was planning to capture a Panoramic Star trails picture, so on the night of the moon eclipse I put two Canon T1is next to each other and captured 290 pictures on each one, then stacked the sequences and stitched them together to form this image. there are few more trails in the picture on right, that's because the moon spent more time in the left image washing some stars out.

Hi,

Replaced the photos flickr with larger versions so they are not showing up on this forum now. It will not allow me to edit first post like I planed to do so here they are again incase anyone wants to see them. Sorry about the multiple posts.

Oh what a night!! A total lunar eclipse and clear skies, I couldn’t have wish for more. From Donegal, Ireland, Moon rise occurred just after totality but I was still able to capture everything that was visible from my location. I searched google maps and street view for the past few weeks trying to find the best location in the county to view the eclipse from. The pier in Mountcharles, outside Donegal town provided a picturesque setting and a clear a south eastern horizon making it my location of choice. The weather forecast was predicating a relatively good chance of clears skies. So I packed the car up and headed off brimming with excitement. Upon arrival I was thrilled with my choice of location but the skies were looking threatening, clouds everywhere….. expect the south east and that’s the way it stayed all night. The weather was making up for the bitter disappoint of missing December eclipse because of cloud. A few curious passer-byes rolled up to have a looked. The excitement was building and then around 22:10..Euricka!! There she was. The dim, red, eclipsed Moon just hanging over the horizon. A magical and humbling hour followed as the Moon climbed and grow back in to its original form. An amazing night of astronomy. Easily the most memorable experience I have had during my short time in astronomy, along with March’s aurora display.

Image Details:
Location: Mountcharles, outside Donegal town, Ireland
Date: 15Jun2011
Time: 22:00-23:30
Equipment: Canon 1000D, Celestron Omni XLT 150 on CG4 Mount, Velbon 700D fixed tripod, Sigma 70-300mm APO lens

I'm just back from Tajikistan since few days, after two weeks in the Pamir mountains.
This part of central Asia was realy the perfect place for the eclipse.
So I've made a special time lapse with a motor-driven system to follow the Moon for more than 5 hours.
With the naked eye the sight was realy great beaucause the wind stoped during the total part, so the lake was a perfect miror for the Moon and the Milky Way.
