Very nice, the orange/blue color contrasts make the image pop. That's a lot of interval exposures. How long did it take?

An interesting all-in-one visualization.
Can you explain your technique a bit? Surely stars have moved relative to the town, did you anchor the moon exposures relative to the starts or to earth?

Well, this is bits and pieces of total 47 shots with the camera static on tripod. The stars is from one if the images during the peak of the eclipse. The foreground and blue horizon from the last image and the town lights from another. It was quite hard to get correct exposer of the moon and I had some problems with clouds coming and going covering the moon.

Thanks for explaining the editing process, it for sure does look like a lot. I found this 'series' captivating, but also a little confusing: Unless I'm mistaken, the dark parts of the partially covered moon should roughly match the red moon brightness. Have you tried to dim down the red moon pictures a bit and/or stretch the 'blending zone'? Having a bit more consistency with the next 3-4 neighbors on both sides may already be enough to locally create more of a sense of logical progression without losing the sensation of the red moon for which we adapted our iris so that it actually felt fairly bright.

First I must say, I'm really no expert in post processing and this is first time I'm trying this kind of edit.
I appreciate your tips and thoughts of how to improve, may be I will do another try on this one in the near future
