    The Super, Blue, Blood Moon fiasco

    First off, it was cloudy. Took this pic to figure out what adjustments I could make. Then more clouds came in, and the whole thing went behind the mountains. And that was it.

    Bummer, for sure.
    We got lucky in SoCal; first morning in a while with clear sky.
    Great view of eclipse, super moon and 'blue' moon starting at about 4:15 AM.

    We were completely clouded out..pissin' down rain. Go figure...

    Rginn: Looks like you had the settings close, but instead of a 1/5 second
    exposure next time try 1/250s.. The Moon is a very bright object in a
    black sky, so starting a 1/250s is a safe bet. Many of my best Moon pics
    were taken at 1/1000s. Overexpose and it'll be "blown out" every time.

    Thanks DizzyDigger, actually that was at 1/5. I'm not really technical on the camera, but I listen to people who are, so I'll try that. I'm a little bit better on composition at times. Tamrock got some better pics, check those out.

    Better than I could a pic of it! It was clear skies when it started this morning, but the more it eclipsed the more clouds came in. About the time it went to full it was down to the horizon (and I was at work already anyway).

    My phone does crap for taking pics of the moon. I keep trying and it keeps failing.

    Taking good pictures of the moon with your phone will almost be impossible. Primarily because to get really good ones you need a lot of focal length. The digital zoom on cell phones is totally worthless. Secondly you will need to lock your focus at infinity. You donít need the autofocus botching things up as it tries to compensate for the bright moon and dark skies all at once.

    While I enjoy reading about all the treasures, my main interest is digging up the history of my farm
    Never even got a glimpse of it. Too cloudy.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    1 Cor. 13:4-7 NIV
