Here is my shot of this morning’s full lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, the sky was not clear in Carmel Valley and there was a light haze of clouds partially obscuring the moon. But you can still get a feel for the color change about 10 minutes before the eclipse was 100%.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens at Focal Length 500mm, 6 seconds at f/8, ISO 1250 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.
Very cool, Marty! So glad you were able to capture it.
Thank you Robin…
Even though it was a bit cloudy, you’ve really captured something wonderfu! I was researching “Christmas Moon”, which is how the eclipse is described on one calendar we have—and now I see why!
Thanks so much for getting up early and braving the cold!

Thanks Sandy… I’m glad I did it.
Cool! Now that’s dedication.
Thanks. It was soooo cold out there. Wore 2 layers of pants, shirt, vest and parka plus ski cap and gloves.
Thanks Etsu. Got outside at 4:30 am to shoot the whole eclipse.
