After a couple of days beeing offline from our ISP I finally managed to upload a couple of pictures from the last lunar eclipse in Germany last weekend. We decided to drive to the “highest” peak of the Rhineland Palatinate mountains: Kalmit
This is how the moon looked like just before the “action” began (9:24PM):

We had a bit of luck and most of the times the moon was more or less not hidden by clouds. Only once in a while some smaller clouds covered the moon.
Half an hour later you could see how the earth started moving between the sun and the moon (10:03PM):

Eva mounted the 24-70mm f2.8 lens on her 30D and tried to get some overview shots but this is something we need to practice again in the near future but you could clearly see the eclipse (10:45PM):
Taken with the 30D, 24-70mm f2.8 lens @f3.2 30mm ISO 800 and 1/6s.
And finally this is the highlight of the eclipse as it covered roughly 80% of the moon (11:08PM):
