This is a single exposure. I was on the beach shooting the lunar eclipse with my pitiful equipment, meant only for terrestrial shots. The moon was about to slip behind the fog bank, when a friendly dog came over for a scratch, and bumped my tripod in the process. first I cursed, then I decided to keep it--this photo, not the dog. The dog went home with her owner, both unaware that I had a canine photo assistant that morning.
Thanks to all for the delicious examples you have provided! This contest has been timely for me, because I'm just starting to THINK about dipping my toes into more serious astrophotography.
