Lunar Eclipse

at the end of the eclipse

If I were paying attention, I would’ve taken the camera out earlier! I just caught the tail end of the lunar eclipse, and I ought to have waited longer for the eclipse to fade out except my fingers were freezing, I had no tripod, and I was holding David’s heavy 80-200mm (fully manual) SLR lens. The longest autofocus lens I have is the 28-135mm and I had to focus manually with it, anyway, so this is as close as I got. The next lunar eclipse is 2010, and at the rate I’m buying lenses (i.e., very slowly), I should own a 300mm right about then!
