Lunar Pearls Without a String

Yesterday evening during the partial lunar eclipse, I took this picture. It shows the Moon track in the sky during the central part of eclipse, as seen from the countryside; it's a combination of multiple shots: 39 for the Moon (one every 2 minutes and half) and one final shot for the moonlit panorama; all done on a tripod.
