So quick setup i made my camera and telescope it was cold and windy for houston. Finally managed to get some pictures. My Backyard produced lots of amazing pictures. here is one of them.
This episode is the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses -- known as the tetrad -- that will occur in six-month intervals until September 2015.
