I managed to get a decent photo of the full moon before the lunar eclipse tonight, but by the time the full eclipse showed itself, the moon was high enough in the sky that I couldn’t get my tripod to lock into position for a long enough exposure to get a good shot of it.
And that’s what I get for not investing in a good tripod. You can bet that will be next on my photography acquisition list. And soon because this is not the first time I haven’t gotten good results from this tripod, it is just the most disappointing.
An OK shot of the early stages of the lunar eclipse is below.
UPDATE: For what it is worth, below is the best shot I was able to get of the full eclipse:
