Abstract  Analysis of data from a series of CCD observations of the eclipsing binary QQ Cas collected during the 27-28 October 2004 total lunar eclipse also captured a record of the lunar event. Analysis of sky brightness measurements from the CCD images yielded a time of minimum lunar brightness in good agreement with the predicted time of mid-eclipse.
