Moon eclipse in french Alps landscape
18

Hi to all,

Cross-posting this from the Astrophotography forum, as there are as many landscape photos than moon photos...:-)

This was my first moon eclipse with good weather conditions in the french Alps. Although some manipulation errors rendered many images unsharp (must have touched the focus ring when repositioning the camera after rewinding the Lightrack tracker and forgot to set on lunar rate after a forced restart of Lightrack...), the outing was still a very pleasant one and I have a few "nice" images.

The belt of Venus was nicely visible just before sunrise

Discard the Df timestamps, I think I forgot to reset the time after a trip in India...
