I made up my mind - by golly I was going to get some night photography done if it killed me! I have a LONG way to go in that realm but figured what better chance to do it than the full moon and the lunar eclipse. Yeah, not so much. I was up at 3:30 a.m. (remember peeps I go to work at 6 a.m.) and took the camera and my crappy tripod outside to watch the eclipse. Now don't get me wrong, it was cool to see but we didn't get to see the "blood moon" as the fuzzy clouds just pretty much made it black out. At least in my yard. Imagine my disappointment which got even worse when I finally got back into bed only to hear the alarm 5 minutes later (okay I don't function well in the middle of the night - or read the clock right).
So my contributions are the full moon shots and then a few of the eclipse as it started. I will be doing a lot more reading up on the night photography and hope to do a bit more this winter. Star trails are on my agenda at some point in the next year. On days I don't have to get up for work! LOL
I do still love seeing the full moon with all of it's craters and such! :)
