Can I take it none of us saw any part of the Total Lunar Eclipse during the early hours of Monday morning?

Afraid not Aubrey, but a friend in South Africa sent through some lovely images.

On a related note, my new eyepiece arrived today. I've never seen anything like it. It's a 17mm with a 2 inch barrel, but the 2inch can be unscrewed to reveal a 1.25 inch barrel underneath it - very handy! 

I might even get the chance to try it out tonight. 

Clear skies, 
Darren.

Thank you for replying so soon, Darren!

I am very pleased you have a friend in South Africa who saw and imaged the eclipse. 

And I'm also very pleased you have received a 2" eyepiece today. 

Sadly we have so much high cloud over Dublin tonight (Monday). 
And I'm not sure when we are due to have clear night skies. 
Funny! We have plenty of sunny afternoons but cloudy nights after sunsets. 
I advise everyone here to keep an eye on their favourite weather websites. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Some lovely pictures of the Eclipse from the Canary Islands.

Check out the twitter accounts of Cian O'Regan @irishspaceblog and Jan Hattenbach @JanHattenbach

Unsure how to post pictures etc.
