It was quite mesmerizing to stand on the front porch tonight, and watch the complete lunar eclipse. It was visible here on the East Coast and fortunately we didn’t have too much of a cloudy night.  My daughter, Janine, had her telescope out, and I just had to take some photos.  This is my best image of the nearly full eclipse.

That was the best I could squeeze out of the 1Dmk3 with the 70-200mm f2.8 IS zoom,
and the 1.4x converter.  It’s a 100% crop … so there isn’t anymore detail there than that.
(There was also light cloud cover.)

Which 1.4x converter are you using?
