Stay up late, get up early either way you are in for a spectacular lunar eclipse

I am planing to do both! ha! I will stay up and watch the initial phase while setting up my camera and the telescope together with servos.
I need the telescope to track the moon and I do not have a T-Mount for my new Olympus. So the camera will be mounted on the telescope and the servos will make sure that photos are taken at pre set intervals. There is a 4GB MMC in the camera and it will be enough for the photo graphs I plan to take. The I will wake up at 3:40AM and complete the procedure!
I only hope the fog will not reach the hills!
