The lunar eclipse is July 16-17, 2019.

On the night of July 16-17, 2019, I was able to observe and photograph an interesting lunar eclipse. As in the past year, for this we had to get to the outskirts of the city, as trees and houses interfere with the observations from the yard. The weather was unstable, about 50% of the clouds, so I had to catch the moon between the clouds. Also lightings flickered in the distance. The participants in the photo school “Foton” also participated in the observations. I took two telescopes with me – Celestron NexStar 8 SE and Celestron Omni XLT 127 on the mount Levenhuk ATZ, also 8×26 binoculars. There were other astronomy fans — Nikolai from Syktyvkar with the Sky-Watcher BK 102 Mak telescope and Alexander with a home-made 200-mm dobsian. Managed to see Jupiter, Saturn, and, well, actually, a lunar eclipse from start. In the full phase, the moon was not completely closed by the earth’s shadow; The atmosphere was very stable.
