Lunar eclipse

Although there are usually one or two full lunar eclipses a year, it's been a while since I've seen one. Things like clouds, or maybe it occurs really late/early are the usual reasons I've missed them.

But on Wednesday Feb 20, there was a full lunar eclipse and this time I got to see it. I also pulled out my camera and tripod and got this picture.

Even with a decent digital SLR (Pentax *ist DS) it was tough to get a good picture. I had to shoot in RAW mode, then work on the exposure in Photoshop for the above result to match what I was seeing with the naked eye.
