What a great night this was! It turns out that on this night, the night of the super rare winter solstice lunar eclipse, a lot of america was under cloud cover. Luckily, south Florida was exempt, and we got a nice clear evening.
I stayed outside in the cold for several hours trying out my new Canon T2i, and its software on my laptop for use as an intervelometer. This image was produced from taking a frame every 3 minutes with the EF-S 55-250mm lens.
Although I must confess, I took the actual pictures at 7 second intervals to make a smoother time-lapse video of the event. The resulting video can be viewed in HD below!
Also, a big thanks goes out to BadAstronomy.com for showing my image off, I’m honored!
