Lunar eclipse from Nottingham

I managed to get out last night and get some very amateur images of the eclipse.

The first is a composite image of the Moon during the build up to totality as the shadow of the Earth moved across its face, taken between 01:56 (BST) and 03:06:

The second is during totality, at 03:29 (BST), though an arc of bright light still persists on the south eastern limb at this time, this was much fainter at maximum at about 03:50, though I don't have a good imnage from this time:

The final is a time lapse video I've uploaded to dropbox, which shows the onset of the eclipse, again as the Earth's shadow moves over the face of the Moon:

Really nice images James. It looks as if nearly everyone got a good view last night.
