DCM,

I was taking the photos on fairly solid, but a little wet, ground.  I had two tripods set up.  One was for the 800mm fd lens and the other was for the Tamron.  Unfortunately, the head I was using for the 800mm was unable to solidly hold the lens at the high angle I needed when the moon was in the full eclipse position.  Therefore, I used only the 150-600 for the red moon shots.  The tripod I used for the Tamron was not as solid as the one for the 800, but I don't think that camera shake was the issue.  I used a remote trigger (the CamRanger) so no vibration from that and was using live view. There was no real wind out at the time.

I have done several star photos before with other lenses (including the 800, a Canon 70-200 2.8 and a variety of wide angle lenses) and have not had had the stars come out in such a squiggly pattern before.  Blurred yes, but consistently squiggly like this no.  I first attributed the moon blur to the duration of the shutter, the length of the lens and the movement of the moon.  However, that does not explain the squiggly stars.  I need to go out again and try some star photos with the better tripod and with VC (IS) on and off to see if I can repeat the effect.

Thanks for help in brain storming this issue.

Kindest Regards, Lloyd

It looks like lots of people got good images.  It started out hazy here, and degenerated into a overcast, so I gave up.  The night before was clear.

I got fairly lucky. I was up a few hundred feet above ocean level on the side of a mountain, so above the low-level fog/haze that we sometimes get. Then while there were some high level, thin clouds (cirrus I think), there was a good wind and they were moving fast so there was sufficient clear air for me to get decent shots.

Dear friends.
Thousand thanks for all GREAT PHOTOS of the RED MOON.  Sorry. Past two nights were  Thunderstorm and raining night for my home town( Apex, NC., USA.)---No Red Moon in the cloudy sky.
Well, Here are my RED MOON by Post processing/ Photoshop----Ha, Ha, Ha.
Enjoy.

I hate it when people try to pass off a photoshop image as an original.  Again Surapon, you don’t fool me.  I found the original photograph that you lifted this image from on the Daily Planet website and posted it below.  It shows not the red moon, but you returning from your home world.  I will not let you keep up this deception through some clever cropping of a lifted photo.  This has to stop.

Surapon, I'm not sure if you have enough red "rings" on your gear to shoot the red "Blood Moon" ;D

Great shots by everyone!  I live in humid Florida, so it's not something I can get into, but I really enjoy seeing all of the great work on this post.

Here are mine taken with my T1i and 55-250 mm.

Great shots, nice and crisp.
Some great shots by Jrista and Slyham.
 
Not bad at all!  It rained here so I didn't get a chance to try to shoot.

Thanks everyone! Mine are nothing compared to Jrista, but I am very happy with them considering my gear. It was nice and clear in Arizona as it is most nights. I also learned very quickly that any exposure over a second was too long which surprised me.

It was very neat to witness and capture.
