It's nice here on the "dark" side, you should try it some time - it's a nice feeling to shoot with gear not EVERYONE else shoots with... :whistle: :thumbs_up: :tongue:

Glad the EXIF data could help, there are many settings that work shooting the moon as you can play around with the exposure triangle quite a bit with this subject matter - I found my recipe that works for me and I'm sure you'll fine tune your own as well. :thumbs_up:

I also stayed up 'til the end of the eclipse... not a bad feat in St Anderton, considering our temperatures near midnight! I just had to... the night sky was that invitingly crispy clear that you see very infrequently. I looked at the moon and decided this is one eclipse I had to photograph!

:lol: :redface:

It was an extreme lesson in lunar movement! I had NO IDEA that the moon moves so "rapidly" (or the rotation of the earth is so quick) that even "short" time exposures captures blur. I'll know better next time!

Love your results, Switchback! Although I see that you suffered to a lesser degree, the same fate as I as the full eclipse took effect.

Also cannot compete with yours here Switchback, though I also tried my luck. Was in a meeting and decided that I would take some pics during the coffee break-except I left my tripod behind :wall: :wall: . I did manage to get the camera mounted on the car, but could not get anything decent, except for these. The first is one I did take with a tripod. The last 2 is a shots taken of last months new?? moon. Sigma 170-500 plu x2TC.
