Behold the penumbra


Last night, on January 10th, 2020, the Full Moon made close approach to unsharp Earth’s umbra, producing significant darkening on its south edge. Despite wild weather over Studnice by Nové Město nad Moravou, Czech Republic, I made it happen to take this three-hours long sequence. During the maximum phase at 20:10 CET, the Moon was pretty dark on its egde even to naked eye. Not total, but still memorable lunar eclipse. Used Canon 6D, MTO 1100/f10.5, ISO 640, sequence of same 17 exposures.
