Total Lunar Eclipse of the Harvest Moon

This past Sunday night I enjoyed clear skies here on the Cape to view and photograph the total lunar eclipse. It was spectacular to watch!  I've seen countless eclipses over the years but this one was especially beautiful.  

This is an exposure showing the Moon at mid eclipse floating among the background stars of the constellation Pisces.

Here's a long time exposure lasting 3hrs and 45min.  It shows the entire path of the eclipse over my home.  Before the eclipse on the left, mid eclipse in the middle (turning orange and much dimmer) and then the reverse on the right as the Moon comes out of eclipse and brightens back to normal.
