These are composite images shot with my Canon Rebel EOS 350D and stacked in startrails. The 14 exposure composite was shot with my 17-85mm lens set at 85mm f10 1/80 second ISO 100 The exposures in both shots were spaced out by 1:40 minutes. The seven shot composite was shot with a friends 70-200mm lens at 200mm. f4 1/30 second ISO 400 Too bad the clouds got in the way of those last couple of exposures. Go here to get startrails.

The partial Lunar Eclipse was beautiful as it set over Boise, Idaho and the distant Owyhee Mountains on Saturday morning! The light was changing rapidly, and show was magnificent. Canon S5IS, 100 ISO, 1/8s exposure, f7.1.

I caught the moon, partially eclipsed in Earth's shadow, setting in the west in the dark blue twilight wedge created in the sky by Earth's shadow.

I watched the partial lunar eclipse from near Richmond, Texas this morning. It was a very pretty event, enhanced by its proximity to the horizon.

This has been a great week for sky watching and astronomy! Summer Solstice arrived on Monday and this morning a partial lunar eclipse! Plus I watched two consecutive ISS passes while out observing the eclipse. The first image is looking down my driveway, and the second one is at maximum eclipse and right before the Moon ducked behind some clouds.

Slept through the alarm, but I managed to run outside to catch the moon setting over my house.
