That was autofocus. I tried manual focus and couldn't do it. The lens is so heavy that pointing it up at the moon and trying to focus at the same time was futile. I tried some shots that were supposedly autofocus where the focusing didn't work. I realized the problem was that in supporting the lens, I had part of my hand on the focus ring. Apparently just touching it is enough to disable autofocus. So I was learning how to use the new lens.DSP121 said:Such a focused click!
Photorex said:today we have had a full eclipse of the moon in Germany.
The moon is hidden in the shadow of the earth. the sun rays are "bend" through the earth's atmosphere such that only red light hits the moon surface hence the name blood moon at least here in Germany we call it so.
This was the longest eclipse duration for this century (It lastet about 100 minutes).
Here are two of my results:
the small light point in the bottom right corner is the Mars, so these are two red planets in one shot.
