Lunar eclipse of 10 December 2011

I wasn’t expecting much when I first heard the news earlier this week about the coming lunar eclipse owing to the rainy weather prevailing in our area.

But, lo and behold – the skies cleared up last night!

And so with great haste I managed to set up my camera in what would be a tedious shoot for the next 2 hours or so! When I finally called it quits, the moon was directly overhead so that the camera position was already vertical! Looking at the viewfinder of a tripod-mounted camera positioned vertically is no joke. I was expecting a stiff neck upon waking up this morning hehe 😉

Composite above shows photos taken from 9:02PM-10:00PM. Relative moon positions are not accurate; presented here solely for graphical purposes.
