Like Macnite, I spent a few hours on Wednesday night, documenting the lunar eclipse. Weather here in Western Canada was a little warmer than the east, temps hovering around the freezing mark, but a beautiful clear crisp winter eve.

These shots were with my FZ20 w/ TCon 17 attached, fully zoomed at 12x, F8, iso 80, WB - sunlight. First shot is a 10:47 pm MST. exposure at 1 second to capture the shadow area of the moon. Lighted side of moon is blown out.

A few seconds later, I set my exposure to 1/100 sec. to capture details of the lighted side of the moon. All other setting remained the same.
