Lunar Eclipse

I took a bunch of pictures of the Lunar Eclipse a few nights ago, and only just finished getting them on-line (normally this is faster but I had some old-AFS issues to fight with.)

Most of the pictures are taken with the Kyocera Contax SL300-RT mounted on an AstroScan telescope. (Update: The last page of the gallery now has some pictures of the setup itself, [Thanks lxs!] sitting in the back of the truck where the shots were taken; if you look closely you can even see the moon on the camera's viewfinder screen...)
