    Default Lunar Eclipse image.



    Thought I would post an image of the eclipse we had yesterday, something which may occur only after 18 yrs. This is the view as seen from India. Before and after images.

    Plus I got a really good image of NGC 869, double cluster and stacked them with 10 lights and 10 darks, at 20 secs a piece.

    Hope you like them.

    Nice shot on the eclipse!
    - the cluster is technically ok but a bit overclipped on the black - makes it looks like a paint spatter - try not taking so much of the low light information away.

    I don’t know, but the double cluster looks like it has a smiley face in it.
