I managed to get a couple of photos of the lunar eclipse during a break in the light cloud cover. Saturn is visible to the left of the moon and Regulus just above. These were taken just before 10:30 pm, February 20, 2008.

Great shots. You must have a good camera.

Thanks. I used my Casio QV-R51 digital camera(5 mega pixels), that I've had for three years now. I took about 30 photos using different settings/modes and most didn't come out well at all, just a couple worth sharing. I used my Ultra Pod II tripod, zoomed in a little bit, and used the NightScene setting for the longer dark exposure time. I just used Picasa to crop and sharpen the final ones.
