The Lunar Eclipse, 20th February 2008

I have a number of devices at my disposal for imaging in astronomy but none of them really dedicated, per se; they are mostly repurposed CCTV cameras (I've mentioned this in previous posts). However, this isn't an impediment; I managed to collect a few, mainly using the Samsung and, oddly, my old Sensortech monochrome, which suddenly decided to behave beautifully (turns out the iris was stuck; it suddenly freed itself. Imagine that).

I remember this. I stayed up all night, and tried to take pictures, but none of mine turned out. A lot of the magic is lost though, looking at an eclipse through pictures. The moment is eternal, and therefore, banal.
