The September 28th total lunar eclipse was very impressive, as it turned out to be a very dark one, and for once, it happened in a perfectly clear sky.
This is a collage I created from six separate exposures showing the extent of Earth’s umbra.

The collage was inspired by this visualisation: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=4340. The images were shot through a 127mm f/8 apochromatic refractor.
Here is a combination of two timelapse sequences:
