Eclipse Moon - canon 20d w/17-40

Tonight there was a lunar eclipse which turned the moon bright orange. This is a composite shot of course. The main image is made up of three exposures to capture the path of the stars and then I've added a shot of the moon using a telephoto lens which was taken immediately afterwards and from the same position.

    Wow, very nice photo. I'm loving the detail in the building and the moon, and the seemingly gradient sky.

    That's an interesting shot, and a good technique to go with it.

    Nice shot. In the big version it looks like you also caught an airplane or satellite zipping by vertically in the frame just to the right of the moon. Very faint, but it's there.

    Nice composite -- it actually looks very natural.

    Nice! I like the way the building is illuminated and how the star trails are perfectly perpendicular to it.

    A simply wonderful eclipse photo. You think to pull out the telephoto or telescope adapters... but then you'd miss shots like this!

    Great shot, best I've seen from this weekend. Alas I just wasn't prepared enough to photograph it myself.
