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
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.
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?

This is probably way too late but I only finished processing most of my images recently. Here are three during totality with an FS60 CB at F/10, Canon 5D Mk3, on a Star Adventurer, and the fourth was from playing about in Photoshop to make a sequence of the Diamond Rings from C2 through to C3. Taken from Fireside campsite, Wyoming.
