Thanks so much for sharing all your photos :)  It was such a cool event for me to see, definitely worth skipping a night of sleep, and It's awesome to see this from other people's perspectives.

@Don - thanks for the tip on RegiStax!  Something else to check out and play with :) :) :)

When you use a 600mm + 2x TC, does the moon still fit on a 7D from where you live?  Where I am, if it's a supermoon, with a 1.4x TC on a crop, I can barely get the moon in the frame -- I have to use a geared head to compose it, and the moon's movement will quickly take it out of frame.

This time around, I went with my 6DII and used the 150-600 with no TC at all (definitely, there, it could have used a TC).

Hi Folks.
Many great shots here particularly those of the blood moon.
I did pop outside and grab a couple of shots, it was cold and late and I was just out of a bout of “man flu” and didn’t want to refresh that so it was a quick effort, 100-400 L II with 2x III on a 7DII hand held arms length live view focus whilst shivering. I should have determined to spend longer get a tripod and wrapped up warmer! ::) :)
No blood moon here, but still a fairly extraordinary event so I’m glad I had a look at it, here is my not great attempt to document the event.
