93% of Full Waxing Gibbous Moon

This is a practice shot for the upcoming lunar eclipse in the wee morning hours of Dec 21, 2010 (for my area). I don't have high hopes it will remain a clear sky for the event (rarely does) but I'm making a few practice shots so I have an idea just in case it is clear at 2 AM on Tuesday.
This was hand held mostly to get an idea of the exposure readings but I do plan on using my tripod for the real event.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Hey Patti, what numbers did you use here? Ron

I'm hoping it is clear too. Great shot of the moon, Patti. Hope you get to get the image on Tuesday. :)

Looks good! I think I used f/8, 1/320 sec, iso400 on a tripod to photograph the last lunar eclipse. I am planning to stay up for the event, but unfortunately it doesn't appear that the skies will be clear here :(

Looks like a great practice shot (as I glance over my shoulder and see this same moon rising over the Alaskan snow.)

Looks like you are off to a good start!
