Outstanding job.

I was surprised how much less light this eclipse reflected than a normal moon. Usually I shoot at around 1/400 sec (ISO 80/f4.7), but for this one 15 sec was barely sufficient. And of course, at that speed the moon moved quite a distance in the photo. :-(

Beautiful. I knew there would be moon shots, today. Complete cloud cover in Indiana.

Perfect shot! I didn't get to see it here due to the cloud cover so I really appreciate those who post their shots on here. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Tack sharp, excellent detail.
What is an AstroTrac mount?
Thanks for letting us know about how you did this!

Thank you for sharing. Can't believe someone doesn't give a 10 for this shot. Well, if I had more than a 10, you would have gotten it. Eclipses are so hard to shoot.
