Picture was taken using a visible light filter (Baader film).
M95 located below the constellation LEO has a star which went nova. This 90 second shot barely shows it.
Better know as "R" Lepus, Hind's Crimson star is a sight worth seeing. To the eye, it appears to be a deep reddish color. The "white balanced" camera shot makes it appear "yellowish".
Composite of six "still" frames (6sec./exposure) over a period of six minutes. Lulin is moving out of our Solar System (speed in this picture = 134,780 MPH), so it is actually slowing down after its encounter with our Sun.
This picture was taken thru a double pane screened window. Hence the diffraction spikes and the "false" image of the moon.

Below is a picture of the eclipse (as the moon began to leave the Earth's umbra). Unfortunately, high thin clouds kept the conditions for observing the eclipse less than optimal. But then, the best weather should be saved for RMSS!
Saturn is on the left-hand side, the eclipsed moon is obviously red.
This event is held annually in Gardner, Colorado. For more information visit RMSS.org
