It was totally overcast here when the eclipse started. Then a few hours I saw some holes in the clouds, so I tried to blend two exposures together. I can't say that I'm loving the result, but I believe in the theory that "If your image looks crappy, post it small & maybe nobody will notice!"  ; )

Everybody excellent job and so many nice images.
Seems all have had fun and no one is yet turned into "Wolverine". That is if you have all checked yourself before mirror this morning!

LOL.
On the serious side; Stop acting humble. This is a very nice image, very closely resembling some of NG pictures or pictures you see on a DVD or a media cover.
You did well and Smart.

Due to a thin cloud cover where I live, I couldn't get a fast enough shutter speed to avoid blurring, not to mention loss of detail at the edges. This shot taken early is marginally OK.


Love the color of sky and moon. Very complimentary and vivid.

We had some light haze near the horizon in Orange County, here is moon rise over the Santa Ana Mountains.

This is exactly what I saw. You must be living somewhere in California.
Moon really gets nice when shown in relation to landscape, rather than free standing beauty in mid sky. You showed that very well, specially that this is a super moon, caught in early eclipse. Well done.

I got these just as the moon peeked through the trees.

I think these are my pick of the page.
Really nice and poetic.
There are too many nice collage images but all look alike and repetition where as these are the true unique and art of the event. Specially given that fact that, how you, used the bad whether, into your favor and enhancement of the result.

Congratulation to all. And all those who missed it, well you will see one exact similar one in 18 years, if you can promise not miss it again for any reason, more importantly make sure breath and hav, but then there will be a least 2 garden variety non super moon eclipse (As if anyone can really tell the difference) per year. So cheer up.

Sadly most of the reddening event was below the hills and behind clouds, and I was too sleepy to shoot the rest of the night when the shadow was receding. For my locale January 2019 looks like a good one, http://eclipse.gsfc.na​sa.gov/lunar.html (external link)

Not easy. Had to go to ISO 2000, F/5.6 and 0.5 seconds.

This is what I got, shooting from Lewiston, ME. I only had a 70-200 on a 7DII. I really wish that I had something more like a 400mm. The moon is only around 450px wide.

I just want to mention that the displayed metadata is for the last moon in the sequence. The first few were taken at ISO 100, f/5.6, and 1/100. I didn't think through it at the time, but the moon moves much slower than I expected. I could have dropped my shutter speed a lot to reduce the ISO.

Griffin park was also in my list of locations but from prior experience, I figured out it is going to be very crowded. How was it this time? Did you try to shoot from hiking hill across the observatory too (With that large glass I would not blame you if you were not willing to move too much). When did you get there to find a parking spot? Did you get any image in very early phase of eclipse, when moon at horizon and with the view of LA in landscaper? That was my wish but Griffin won't cross the LA down town in an East axis line and I would love to be in Getty center but they close at 5:30.
