January Lunar Eclipse

The image of the Lunar Eclipse of January 2019 was taken from the rooftop of the Physics Dept. with a 5" Maksutov-Cassegrain and a Sony Alpha 7 DSLR. A group of members stayed up all night watching the eclipse, even with 9am lectures the next day!

Up until the 2am start, the weather was not in our favour, however it suddenly took a turn for the best, allowing us to watch the eclipse in it's entirety. The image below shows a composition by Pascale (Twitter: @phdesmet), showing the transition of the eclipse.
