Though the clouds were coming and going, I managed to get a few shots of the eclipse using an 80mm University Optics refractor (f/6.3) and a Canon 10D camera, 100 ISO, 3s exposure.

The spectrum of the moon was taken just before eclipse starts with a simple spectroscope made from a CD and a cereal box. As moonlight is reflected sunlight, the spectrum is continuous with dark lines, i.e. the Fraunhofer lines (some of them are marked). The eclipse photo is taken with 8'/f6 Dob, 18mm eyepiece adaptor, Nikon coolpix 995 camera.

UK battered by storms and gale force wind doesn't deter amateur astronomers!
