Super Moon Eclipse

Super Moon Eclipse
This was awesome to watch.

The Lunar eclipse on Sep 27, 2015 happened when the Moon was at perigee, the point in its orbit which is closest to Earth.  Not only does the moon appear just a bit bigger then, but, when it coincides with a Lunar eclipse the Moon can get deeper into Earths shadow, making for a particularly dark eclipse.

I shot this with a 952 mm focal length (f/7.5) APO refractor.  This is a combination of 40 shots, a mix of 2 seconds at ISO 400, 1 second at ISO 800 and 0.5 seconds at ISO 1600.
