Observing location
Chelmsford, UK
90mm, f/6 refr. ASI294MC
2s + 30s

This looks very artificial but it does show the starfield and eclipsed Moon at the same time. This is a composite of 2s and 30s frames taken within 40s of each other. There was some high cloud at the time so there is quite a bit of stray light but it shows stars down to around mag 14.
