Lunar Eclipse

I was watching the moon rise yesterday on my run, and noticed how big and orangish it looked. I was ready for the eclipse having already tested the mirror lockup feature. If you haven't used it...use it for long exposures. My friend was witness to the little streak it will make without it. But, we saw the star streaks. And turn/set your "NO CF" function to not let you take a picture if you don't have a memory card in. :) I'm sitting at the top of that hill with a tripod, in the middle of the night when the realization hits. That's all I'm gonna say :) I feel like a dork! Next time...

Did you see the lunar eclipse?

We have this one thing in common, we both study the moon pretty close. Atleast I do every night when I take my dog out!!
