Observing location
Albox Spain
Sony Alpha 58 Camera
500mm Lens
Tripod mounted

It was clear here in Spain so I managed to get a sequence of the partial lunar eclipse which started when the Moon was below my horizon. I used my Sony Alpha 58 camera with a 500mm zoom lens mounted on a tripod with no drive and took images of 1/400 s. Timings somewhat erratic as I kept falling asleep when I came in the house between shots! I started imaging just after 10pm local time.
