Thanks very much for the positive comments Leon, Stephen, Trevor, Peter, Baz, Callingrohit, Paul, Humayun, and Carl! Much appreciated. I'd planned this a month or 2 ago, so it was nice that the weather cooperated.

Cheers,
Stephen

I used the "Startrails" software Mark. Very easy! You'll find it here:

Very nicely done Stephen – I only wish events happened on a monthly basis!

Did you adjust the exposure for the non-eclipsed Moon and the eclipsed Moon, or shoot the same exposure all the way through the sequence?

Cheers

Dennis
