Total Lunar Eclipse on 21. January 2019

After I managed to miss the Lunar Eclipse in summer 2018 due to bad weather, this time the weather was perfect. Although with -10°C and snow covered ground this was quite challenging for both, observer and equipment. However, the sky was perfectly clear and I was able to watch the first part of the Eclipse from my backyard. For the final I had to move to a small peak nearby to see the moon low over the horizon. This was at my usual observing spot on the Steppenberg in Aachen, overlooking the Dutch village of Vaals.
The close up shots were all shot with a 4″ Maksutow with 1350mm focal length.
