I was treated to a beautiful, clear sky for the partial lunar eclipse that was visible in the United States and Canada, as well as Central and South America and some parts of Australia, Europe and Asia. For my time zone (EST) the penumbra made first contact about 1 a.m. The maximum eclipse occurred at 4:03 a.m. EST and here is a prime focus shot through my telescope at f/4.5, 1/2.5s exposure.
