This is absolutely beautiful. Fav for me as well!! Is the key to have a lens that zooms to 400mm? I am new at this..Mine only goes to 200 mm ..I posted a moon pic today as well..

This is great. Awesome detail. What part of the world are you from? I am located in northern Vermont, USA. It was very cloudy no moon at the time of the eclipse. Clouds cleared right after sunrise. :(

Cool shot, everyone on my Facebook is going on about the moon tonight, I must have missed it, saw nothing!

@elizabeth264 I just used the biggest lens I have to get as much detail as I could. @shuterfly I'm in Exmouth in WA, Australia. There was slight wispy cloud going over the moon when I took this photo too. What is it with clouds coming the one night of the year you want to see the moon!!! Thanks for you Favs and comments :D

It's a fantastic shot, great detail and colour. I went out a few times and all i got was a red blob!! Having my first lesson soon on how to use my camera manually....might help!

Nice one! I didn't even see it so I'm enjoying it through your eyes!

I was really looking forward to seeing your shot of this - it's absolutely wonderful, well done! The light and shadow and shimmer on it are great and the colour - wow!
We didn't get to see any of it from here (not unsurprisingly when you consider we are on the other side of the world) so I was hoping you had managed to get it! Fav

Thanks @filsie65 for your kind words. Bit of a bummer that we had so much cloud around...I just couldnt quite get a clear shot because of the wispy cloud and as it came into complete shadow I couldnt see it at all for the clouds!!!! But Im happy enough with this one until the next eclipse anyway :P

Had another look, can't see any clouds so you did really well catching it when you did! I have seen shots of it completely red but actually love the shimmer on one side better!
When the moon rose here yesterday it had a chunk missing! I jumped up and grabbed the camera then realised it was just a cloud - it was hours after the eclipse....doh.......!

WOW! Amazing shot! This is definitely a fav. We had clouds overhead so didn't get to see this at all. Thanks for posting!
