Image Details:

Last nights partial lunar eclipse was a bit disappointing in some ways. It appeared to start when the moon was right overhead, making it difficult to photograph. Could not get the camera to face directly overhead with the tripod. Had to manage holding by hand.
After all the effort and keeping awake until 3.30 am, the earth's shadow hardly covered a small part of the moon.
