Lunar Eclipse 10 Dec, 2011 18:22 IST - 21:45 IST

Start at 18:22 Indian Standard Time (IST) to 21:45 IST

And I started to click from 18:15 to 22:00

This image is a combination of 22 different exposures and all transition of moon has difference of 5-10 min in between. And at 19:30 PM the Moon becomes complete RED on full eclipse.

Red moon capture requires a lot of experiment with settings (as this is my first ever capture of any eclipse... a great learning on How to capture a Lunar Eclipse). Finally I take complete red moon image on very high ISO approx 6400.

This image is also my first ever edit in Photoshop as I am new to Photoshop and don't know how to run it properly and operating all different options and tools. But still I manage to put all 22 best exposures in a single image. I don't know what it called Stacking or stitching of images but I am terrified and satisfied by my own first try and performance on both capturing and procession images of Lunar Eclipse.
