Well, dang. The black dog and I were looking forward to dancing under a blood moon, but I got the time wrong and we only caught the last quarter. Mother Nature frowns on tardiness, but she gave us partial credit, which means any earth-magic we practice in the next half-year will be four times harder than it could have been, but still four times easier than if we hadn't tried at all. Lesson learned: double-check the schedule.
I haven't done any astrophotography but I'm not too discouraged by this shot with the Super Takumar 200 f/4; there's enough detail in the shadows to suggest that with a tripod and some exposure finagling we might get it right next time. We'll try again in October.
