Lunar eclipse with stars

Lunar eclipse with stars

I've been fussing over this for a week to get it right. I was wanting to show how many stars were visible in the sky even as the eclipse was coming out of totality. In reality there were even more visible in person. I took this with my son's Canon Digital Rebel XTi with the 75-300mm zoom set at 75mm, ISO 1600 15 second exposure. With that length of exposure there was a bit of trailing in the stars that I had to trim off a bit. In doing so I lost some of the stars.
