Here's a pic I took from Mon/Tues, my tripod was broken, but I made up a little rig to keep the camera mostly steady. I posted a slightly different one in another Eclipse thread here

Oh, great, Pure Evo,

Definitely the best of all the moon eclipse pictures this time around. That's the colour!

Thanks very much! I got really lucky that the clouds parted for me just as the eclipse was at the best part. Right after this, the clouds rolled back in and I was done.

Very nice Steve. I am so jealous that I did not get to film the event. Thanks for sharing, truly once in a lifetime chance! Frank

Excellent sharpness in those moon shots Bruce - I tried with a 500m mirror and Pentax AFA x1.7 but still couldn't get anything like that (and the AFA is just about the best TC out there in any brand and in any mount).

Pure Evo - lovely, just lovely.

Bruce- Regarding the close ups of the moon, what camera did you use and how did you get such detail (settings, lenses, etc).

Pure Evo- same questions regarding your moon/stars shot.

I inquire because I want to buy my husband a camera that can capture the tiniest of details. Does this require patience with long exposure or can an amateur accomplish this quality?
