Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2016-03-23 11:48 UTC

The transparency was excellent but seeing was extremely crappy, about V Antoniadi for the most of time.

The penumbral shadow of Earth is visible on the left (south) side of the apparent lunar disc from this image, which is taken around the maximum of the penumbral eclipse. However, through my naked eye I couldn't tell any difference from a normal full moon.

Video calibrated in PIPP with bias subtraction and flat-field division. The files were output in TIF format and fed in Avistack V1.8 for alignment and stacking. Wavelet adjustment done in Registax V5. Further stretch and saturation adjusted in Photoshop CC.
