Sorry for the imperfect stitching!
The beginning and the end of the eclipse were totally not visible because of heavy dark clouds.
Occasionally the clouds would become thin and I could see through. Focusing was very difficult.
This is my first attempt with a digital camera to shoot a lunar eclipse.
When the clouds became transparent I took these images.
Nikon D5100 and AFS Nikkor 70-300mm f 4.5-5.6.
I was keeping the zoom position constantly at 260mm. But I moved it twice while trying to focus
manually, that changed the image size slightly.
Finally it smiled like the Cheshire cat and disappeared!
A glowing full moon came out of the clouds after the eclipse and much later in the night. Quite disappointed, I was!
