Blood Moon Progression over Pittsburgh

I didn't know if I could pull this off, but I wanted to try anyway.  I went to a spot where I knew I could line up downtown Pittsburgh with the Full Blood Moon eclipse in its entirety the other night.  I set the camera to capture a shot every 3 minutes.  For this image, I used every other shot captured until the Moon was fully red.  I processed 16 images then stacked in Photoshop to form this one collage.  Camera is EOS R, with RF 15-35 Lens - f3.5 at 22mm, ISO 160 - exposure times varied.Blood Moon Over Pittsburgh 5/15/2022Blood Moon Over Pittsburgh 5/15/2022

We had the blood moon but have too much light from streetlights, stores, etc. in my area. Nice photo! Edit- nice job at stacking.
