total lunar eclipse

Today's total lunar eclipse was visible at a relatively decent hour here in New Zealand - totality was roughly 21:52 through 23:22. The weather throughout the day was cold wet southerly winds, which brought occasional showers and full cloud cover. However, around 22:30 it stopped drizzling and cleared up enough to get some decent eclipse views.

I brought my telescope outside but didn't have a battery available to power the motor drive (yes, lack of planning), so long exposures during totality were not possible. I did manage to get a couple of acceptable shots though. See more pictures in my gallery.
