What the equipment you used to take this shot? I'm browsing at telescopes the last few days and would love to be able to take a shot like this myself.

Well, thanks to all for all the good comments and am glad you all liked it. It was taken with a camera on my telescope with a tracking device so that the moon does not move in the long exposure of forty seconds required to capture the red hues of the totality during the eclipse.
