Eclipse

There was a partial lunar eclipse last night, so I thought I would take some photos of the moon, which I have never done before. It’s more complicated than I had thought – my cheap 70-300mm lens didn’t cope very well (and really, I don’t think 300mm is quite long enough) and my tiny tripod was frustrating me.

Crouching on the gravel in the dark, I also had difficulties getting the exposure right. Not to mention the clouds. I ended up with about two shots I was happy with – next time I’m definitely going to use a better tripod (no more crouching) and wait for a clear night sky.
