Composite image of the total lunar eclipse on the 20th of February, 2008. Taken at 5 minute intervals from 6:13pm to 7:03pm US Pacific Time. Totality was achieved at 7.01pm. The yellowish tinge to the moon in the first few images is due to its proximity to the horizon at the time. As it rose higher the yellow colour faded away, only to be replaced by the eerie blood-red of the eclipse.

Location: Rocky Butte, Portland, Oregon., USA.

Details: Canon Digital Rebel XT, Canon 70-300mm EF IS USM @ 300mm. Tripod mounted, cable release, mirror lockup. Shooting RAW files. Exposures vary from 1/60th second at ƒ/11, ISO 100 for the first image to 1 second at ƒ/11, ISO 800 for the final image. Some minor exposure and white balance adjustment in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom before final composition in Photoshop.
