Inspired by the current event, I went back to do the final finishing of an image I have long planned from the 2019 lunar eclipse.

Thats a beautiful image Øivind
Thank you for sharing

Thanks for the enthusiastic comments, Akira and Colin.
The Beehive cluster is located right in the center of the constellation Cancer (the shape of a crab). It was also in close proximity to the January 2017 lunar eclipse.  Here is  post with an image from that event where it can bee seen on the right side of the moon: https://nikongear.net/revival/index.php?topic=1693.msg113950#msg113950

Very nice capture Oivid :) :)
Moon in eclipse is totally mysterious and with this star cluster is more and more!

Thanks Nasos. I am really happy how this came out considering the troublesome conditions during eclipse capture. The inspiration to do these captures came from the January 2017 lunar eclipse.

There was a conjunction between the moon and the very bright Jupiter last night, as a reminder that the US will see an extremely close conjunction or occultation of Mars by the Moon on December 7, about 7:45 PM Pacific standard time. Unfortunately the forecast here in interior Alaska does not look promising, but never give up hope...

Very nice Oivid, I notice this between moon and Jupiter but was too lazy to capture
I suppose the conjunction of  7th of December will not be visible for Europe?

Thanks Nasos. The map in this link, https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/on-december-7-the-moon-will-photobomb-mars/ , could indicate that the Mars occultation it can be seen from part of Europe too, perhaps at twilight in the morning, but I always consult Stellarium to get specifics and timing for my location at such events. Alaska is so far north that Mars only will be grazing the moon, but close enough that it should still be quite spectacular if weather would cooperate.
