What luck! During my annual trip back home to Melbourne, Australia, we were blessed with a total lunar eclipse! Dad and I got up early, about 4:30am, to watch the proceedings. By the time, the Moon was already about 50% eclipsed, and it really didn't take long to get to totality. The image above is probably the best shot I took, for a series of about 200 or so. The image below was taken about 15 minutes prior to totality. Some high level clouds rolled in and started to obscure our view, plus I was shooting with a dewed zoom lens to was working against the odds a little at the time this specific shot was taken. It was very dark so the image above doesn't really reflect how dark it actually looked in the Western sky. It was great fun to be able to see this, though!
