Default "Blood" Moon

Had a lot of trouble getting this shot-moon was really dark-thought it would be brighter in the Arizona desert. K-5iis using DA 55-300
F11 ISO 3200 shutter speed 15 seconds-tripod.
Know it is blurry-best I could do-long exposure was the only way to see it "red"

You shouldn't have used f11. You shooting at infinity so even wide open it would have been sharp.
Don't want to hijack your thread but


It's 200mm, f4, 1.3s, ISO 1600

At 15s there's no way to make it sharp due to moon moving.

Some interesting and varied results! We missed seeing this here in East Tennessee - night was very overcast - so I appreciate the photo views.
