The image shows a fully-eclipsed moon during totality. Note that only during a total lunar eclipse that the very faint stars surrounding the full moon become visible. Image taken from the Seven Suites Hotel Observatory, Philippines, using a 4-inch refracting telescope and a DSLR at ISO 1600, 2-second exposure. This photo got featured in Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day (AAPOD).
My observation setup is consisted of a Sky-Watcher 100 mm f/9 ED mounted on a Kenko NES mount, prime focus at 900 mm with a Canon 450 DSLR. The image below is a close-up high resolution image of the moon.
Also on a piggy-back setup is a Canon S3 IS for wide-field shots of the eclipse. The image below shows the sky condition in Antipolo during eclipse maximum. Pleiades and Taurus are clearly visible in this photo. ISO 800, 15-sec exposure
