✱ Blood Moon / by Evan Troxel

I made this video from my backyard with my Olympus OM-D through a 6" Orion telescope. I don't have a tracking motor on the telescope, and this sequence shows just how fast things move when viewing our solar system. The dark area on the right side of the moon is the eclipse happening. 

Watch closely at :36 for something (satellite?) flying from left to right in front of the moon! 

I also shot a couple of decent photos, but I still have a lot to learn. These images were made before the eclipse happened. I couldn't shoot the full eclipse because there just wasn't enough light.
