Lunar eclipse photos from 15 june 2011

           These are the photos taken from last night with DSLR Nikon D80 and my Newtonian 8 " telescope .It was an spectacular eclipse.Until 10:40 p.m. the Moon was in the clouds that were moving very slow.My hope to see the Moon was lost.Then ,it came out I had no patience. The Moon rose above the night clouds and I started to take pictures with my DSLR Nikon D80, and to film it with Sony HD CX105 camcorder, I've switched the cameras from time to time, to catch as many moments I can.I stayed there until nothing was left but a small shadow in the corner of the Moon .Video captures of Luna can be seen in the link.
These are the photos from the eclipse.
