Well a first edit - the effort was not wasted after all. May be some of my plans for the images can work after all.  It might take some time to complete those plans though. (A complication for further editing is that stars do not show up unless extreme edit is applied.) This is rather unexpected, considering what I was able to see with my eyes. Never give up!! I also notice when looking through the images that seeing (lack of air movement and chromatic aberrations due to atmosphere) was very good.

Great! I'm glad for you

I also have to see the rest of my images

Thanks Armando and Akira.
Of course now the moon is shining outside from a nearly clear sky...

Thank for sharing all the nice pictures  :)
I was up to look out, but did only see clouds  :(
But then I got a nice sleep ;)

Great images, congratulations and thank you for making this eclipse real for me, it was not visible from Singapore (I had to look down through Earth, and saw nothing...). We were fortunate enough to see two moon eclipses in the last 18 months.
And Singapore will be ideally located to see the annular solar eclipse on Dec 26 this year! Of course I will most likely have to travel back to France to see our families precisely at that time.

The orientation  is as I saw it with the bright area on the top left, and this brightness moving counter clockwise
I shot this before midnight and I'm at a latitude  ~22°north  103 degrees west, the moon was seen towards NEE, at an altitude of aprox 70° in the sky

I think from other longitudes when watching after midnight the light will look inverted to what I saw... ?

Here are a few from Seattle - 47.5 N, so these will look familiar to those of us well north of Armando.  Any NG members in Chile or Argentina?  Seattle is normally grey and rainy at this time of year, but luckily we started the evening with only scattered, intermittent cloud and the air seemed quite clear.  It did begin to get a little foggy towards the end - camera, lens and tripod were dripping wet from condensation by the time I disassembled everything.  The first two are with the 500 mm f/4 P on a D810 (at ISO 200, 1/8, f/8 and ISO 800, 1/2, f/5.6 respectively).  For the third and fourth I added the TC-301 to make it 1000 mm, which worked very nicely (both at ISO 64, 1/15, f/16 - i.e. closed down two stops plus the two lost to the TC).  This set-up is far too heavy for my little star-tracker, and I notice that bright stars trail diagonally across about 5 pixels in the 1/2-second shots.  All are cropped a bit, processed for CA and contrast, and lightly sharpened.
Cheers,   John
