Lunar Eclipse 12 Dec 2011

Timelapse of Lunar Eclipse

Up at 4:30am and took off for Powell Butte. Of course, it's closed but there was a nice isolated spot at the bottom of the access road. The eclipse was already in progress so I quickly set up a timelapse sequence on my Cannon Reble T2i,200mm lens, 10-sec intervals. 2nd half of eclipse not visible as the fog rolled in much heavier after totality set in. The result was a short 7-second sequence. I'm also including three stills from that sequence. This was my first attempt at timelapse photography and hope to do much more (and get much better at it).
