Lunar Eclipse 20 January 2019

You’ve already seen plenty of eclipse shots, maybe taken some of your own, here are some of mine. The video is made of of 29 frames taken 5 minutes apart from just before the start of the partial eclipse to about the end of totality when my battery ran down. The Moon appears to rotate as my alt-az mount turned. The single frame shows some stars that came out as we went from Moon light obliterating everything to sixth magnitude stars visible. It was a cold but enjoyable evening.
