    Moon Shots

    Probably about a half a zillion people were taking photos of tonight's Super Blood Moon, so I figured I'd start a thread for folks here to post their pics. Here are three (out of about 150 or so) that I took. The focus wasn't perfect, but I was pushing the limit of my 300mm zoom lens.

    I managed to get this shot when the moon went into full eclipse.

    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    It was beautiful and you got some great shots! We have let phones take the place of real cameras so couldn't get any real pictures but my bride got one of me explaining the eclipse to my shop helper.

    Got one acceptable shot. But battery ran out just as it was getting over the tree tops. Oh, well.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    That's a very cool shot, Frank.

    And Big Mike, the focus on yours is spot on!
