      Appreciate there are a lot of Lunar eclipse images out there.
      After the eclipse I wanted to put together a composite image (if that’s the term) as I have never done that before. Any way, I’ve thrown this together. 
      Thank you for viewing

      We had gorgeous skies here from 3:30 am so I watched the whole thing.  I took a few colour snaps with my Canon DSLR through the ED80 and here are a couple untouched.  Marvellous experience.

      Totality of the Longest duration total lunar eclipse of the century. While this is just one image, given that Bangalore was completely clouded out, or rather, my location was completely clouded out, I had previously planned to put the mount and scope on tracking, so that even if there was a break in the clouds for a few seconds, I should be able to capture the moment. The shot below was taken through hazy conditions, but given that the conditions were such, I am happy with the outcome. The next eclipse is due to occur on 21st  Jan 2019(?). I shall be better prepared. 
      Scope: Orion 80ED with Orion Field Flattener
      Mount: Sky-Watcher HEQ5 PRO
      Exposure: o.5s
      ISO: 6400
      Camera: Canon 550D
      Location: Bangalore, India

      Hello everyone, here is my first attempt at shooting the moon. Taken on 31-01-18 near Melbourne Aust using a Canon EOS1300D attached to an old Saxon 100x400 refractor. I was quite surprised to see a few stars had also been captured. The only editing done was to use a blue filter to get rid of some chromatic abberation.

      Hello,
      I am new to Registax 6.  Tried stacking lunar eclipse photos (used JPG images, could not get right exposure with video).  Used stock settings and reduced points to only 40.  I keep getting ghost images after stacking.

      What can I do to eliminate this?
      Thank You,
      Michal
