Lunar Eclipse Time Lapse

by , under Lunar

I just got around to making a time lapse video from last years lunar eclipse. I had taken a picture ever 30 seconds for the duration of the event. I lost a few frames due to clouds towards the final stages. The movement of the moon in the frame is due to imprecise polar alignment. I had to setup the mount that night and its alignment was slightly off. I remember having to baby sit it and correct the FOV every few minutes until the early morning.
