I don’t know if it made much of a splash up in the Northern Hemisphere, but we had that rare combination of a full moon that was at its closest point to the earth and a full lunar eclipse. The last one was forty years ago. Down in NZ we were treated to the whole show and it was a cold, clear night, so great for visibility.

The proof that I am not an astro-photographer is at hand. I had high hopes that I would get a good series of images of the blood moon, but the moon was so high in the sky (almost directly overhead) that the tripod was severely unbalanced and difficult to hold still. Nevertheless, I managed to get a few images – better than nothing.

Blood Moon 01 is the first image out of the system, and is uncropped.
Canon EOS 90D Sigma 150-600 C @600 with Canon MkIII 1.4x extender. f/9, 1.3sec, ISO-2000 Because of the crop sensor, the Equivalent FoV was 1344mm.

Blood Moon 02: I got another one when the moon was in greater shadow. I had removed the 1.4x extender at this point to be able to open up the aperture more and had also increased the ISO to compensate for the lowering light, so:
Canon EOS 90D, Sigma 150-600C @ 600mm, f/6.3, 1/2 sec, ISO-2500, Equivalent FoV 960mm: also uncropped.

As the moon rose higher the tripod became impossible to manage, so I just stared up in wonder and humble appreciation... Moonstruck.

This may be my last post here on this thread as I am thinking of putting it up for sale. It's been a while since I took it out. I did this weekend as you can search my last few posts. I still think it's a great lens, but I have the RF 800 and EF 100-400 II. So IMO it is not really needed anymore. PM me if interested.

I am shooting with a Canon 7D ii and Sigma 150-600 C.

Two outings ago, the lens would not focus, using either auto-focus or manual. I tried removing it from the camera and remounting it, but could not .I've the focus ring.

Yesterday it suddenly worked when I turned the camera on. A few moments later, it would only auto-focus on near objects. I took the lens off again and there was this little brass connector (looks broken) sitting on the flange of the camera mount. I can't see where it might have broken off the lens or the camera.

I remounted the lens and it all works perfectly, both focus and exposure. But I am now petrified that it will fail on me on an outing.

Does anyone have any idea where this might have broken off and what the likelihood of another failure is without it ?

Check your other lenses that you might use and see if anything is missing? I'm wondering it came off another lens and may have been shorting out connections while the 150-600 was mounted.

Just a guess, but I'd think a broken piece like that would be noticeable on the lens or camera.
