Hello Ines,
You did an excellent job with the lunar eclipse. I read your critique when I critiqued Shelly's excellent "poster" showing each of the phases of the lunar eclipse. We had cloudy skies in Denver, Colorado. I am quite, but not 100% sure, that the star on on the upper right is Regulus and indeed this is Saturn on the lower part of your photo. My star chart for March from "Sky and Telescope" magazine confirms the pattern. The two tiny apparent "diffraction spikes" on the lower "star" look very much like Saturn's rings. Taking shots of the moon anytime is much more difficult than people realize and the phases of the lunar eclipse are even more difficult. Like Shelly O'Brien, you did an outstanding job and I am very impressed!

Hi Stan! Thanks a lot for your info and for your kind comment! After admiring your moon photos, I can't but be impressed! Maybe one day I'll get some special equipment too, but meanwhile I'll make do with my 300mm :-)
Kind regards,
