February 2008 Lunar Eclipse

February 2008 Lunar Eclipse

In February, we had another lunar eclipse opportunity, though not as good as the previous lunar eclipse in August 2007.  At that one, I finally realized that it is really worthwhile to go out to a dark site to watch the stars emerge as the moon fades out.  But this time the fact that the weather prospects were bad and the moon was going to be rising with the eclipse already in progress, I opted to just stay in town.  In fact, the weather was looking so bad that I didn’t do any equipment setup at all.  However, after moonrise, the clouds cleared, so I rushed home to get in a few frames of the eclipsed moon.  I ended up getting the end of totality phase, but not much more before the clouds moved back in.
