Lunar Eclipse in the Village

I wasn’t able to see any satellites shot down but clear skies gave me a nice view of the shadow of the earth as it passed over the full moon. Lunar Eclipse February 20th, 2008

For the camera buffs out there, this series of photos were taken with a Canon EOS 30D with my Canon EF 100-400mm lens.
This was one of the few times I have used the camera in completely manual raw mode.

I admit making the silly mistake that I could take test shots before the eclipse started to find the best settings. As the sky darkened it became obvious that I had to manually adjust the settings to find the perfect exposure.
