A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is just between the Sun and the Moon; obviously this only can happen when the moon is full.

The Lunar Eclipse on March 3-4, 2007 started at 20:18 UT and ended at 02:23 UT.
The TOTALITY started at 22:44 UT and ended at 23:57 UT.

From my observatory I could see only the beginning of this eclipse: alas clouds spoiled the fun.

A late bird transiting the eclipsed moon ...

I used K3CCDTools to control the imaging and set the Video Capture Timer at 3 minutes and imaging during 20 seconds ( @ 15 fps).
During the 'non imaging' gaps of 160 seconds I had time to make minor adjustments to the scope and camera settings, to make snapshots of my setup (see below) and of course enjoy the view.

Here follows an impression of what I experienced in my observatory and imaged with my Nikon Coolpix 995

A view from my observatory.
You see my laptop with K3CCDTools imaging the moon in interval mode, the moon just over the walls of my observatory [I was comfortably seated on the bench in my observatory with my Nikon Coolpix 995 pointing upwards]; the blue cord is used to hold a dark blue bath towel when imaging the sun and on the right is my LX200 [with the WO Zenithstar on top].
