I made several images but this is the most beauty for me.

Wow, my first ribbon!!!! I'm very very exciting, thanks for all nice comments, faves and votes! I really appreciate it!

As I said above, this image was taken trough telescope Orion Optics Europa f/4.5 and 900mm of focal length. I was outisde capturing the eclipse for 4 hours and made more than 80 shots.

Image was processed and converted to .jpg in RawShooter and then some touches in Photoshop CS2 - mostly levels and hue to get this red, in original moon was more orange.

Thanks again, I really haven't expected it!

Very nice capture of the moon. I like taking pics of it too but I am telescope-less.

Nice shot although I couldn't see this particular eclipse at all from where I live. The eclipse was already past totality by the time it rose in my area.

Great shot, I would have cloned out the star in the lower right. It is to bright and competes with the moon.

Nice. The star adds to the shot.
