August 28 Lunar Eclipse II
A few observing notes made while cloud wrangling during the August 28, 2007 Total Lunar Eclipse.
The better prepared you are, the worse the weather will be.
Tripping in the dark is less painful because you can’t see how much your shin is bleeding under red light.
If there’s only one tiny crack in your observation deck, the tiny set-screw you drop will find it.
No matter how big your observing table is, it’s just not quite large enough.
The rock you tripped over earlier has not moved and will trip you again.
I need more sand in my hourglass........
The eclipse was Great in spite of the dense cloud cover we had most of the time!

That is a star at the Moon's upper left, and not a hot pixel.
