RG_IMG_201410_8568-Lunar-Eclipse-by-Roger-GroomTonight was the Total Lunar Eclipse of 8th October 2014. I have just returned from a several week overseas trip and my interest in astrophotography as waned during this time, and over the southern hemisphere winter. However I still made it out to snap a few pics of tonight’s eclipse, from a popular local spot overlooking the city of Perth, Western Australia.

The late twilight colours made for quite a nice setting of the lunar eclipse, as well as the brightness of the foreground light pollution matching the moon quite well.
