Hey guys, is anyone here to witness this lunar eclipse?  Huh

Here in Poltava we had great summer conditions, so observed most of the it except from the beginning of penumbral eclipse. A view of umbral eclipse through 20x90 binos is magnificent!  Roll Eyes A quick look at what I saw is being attached below.

4.0s @ISO400 f/4.5, camera's 18x zoom.

It is maximal umbral phase (1.70) at 20:10 UT. I'd rough estimate it as 1,5 Danjon scale. Notice also the 7.8mag star to lower right. I will link back to the rest of my photos later.  Smiley

Forgot to tell, we had 5 rainy days with thunderstorms in a row, just before June 15th. So on Wednesday I felt so  happy like I saved a lot of fuel...  Grin
