Photograph of the Moon during the total eclipse of January 21, 2019 at 00:13 local time. The images retained were taken between 00:11 and 00:20, that is to say during the period of the total eclipse. When processing the composite image, I focused on bringing out the natural appearance of the Moon as I saw it through my binoculars, when the total eclipse was shot.
