Lunar Eclipse on 10th December 2011

Year's last lunar eclipse provided excellent views of moon. I took some pics and then set the camera to take images for video is below. This is my first time lapse of night sky and I do not have any tripod or mount therefore I just put camera on the ground facing moon..I had to move camera every 5 minutes of so to keep moon in the view..Click here to see some of the pics I took..Please share your comments/suggestions. Thanks for watching.

Moon Images(Processed with Registax)

Hi guys,

Yesterday night sky was clear so I tried record moon. With cheap webcam I was not getting satisfactory results, therefore I tried to process the images with a great freeware called Registax(you can download it from here). Though it was my first ever attempt with registax, I found it very easy to use and effective. Results are as below.
