We got to see it clearly here in the Tampa Bay area, I took loads of pictures, but have yet to download them. I doubt the any are as nice as Ed Junior's

Thanks guys (and gals). But upon closer look (cropped images), mine also have some blur. I think mine is more due to the fact that I couldn't find my remote shutter release. Off to Amazon to get a replacement for that!! Anyway, here are a few more I cropped some to get a better look. Even with the blur, the moon sure put on a show. Wow!

The first ones are the eclipse. The last one showing the moon just about gone also shows it just starting to turn it's orange-red glow. I really wish I could have gotten a better shot of that one.

These up next are the blood moon. Again, gotta have that remote shutter release!

Don't you have a phone app Ed? Canon has one.
I don't believe that's a phone he used, Jackie- certainly I didn't. Mine was a Nikon 7100.

Here's a bit different shot (different exposure, too), though still a tad blurry (note the star above the moon)- I could use that remote shutter release, too, since the timer option is hard to set when it's that dark out:

We had a wonderful view from the farm.
The last time I watched a lunar eclipse was in the early 70s. we were on a boat near Grand Island Bahamas.

Jackie - no, this is an older Nikon D5000, circa 2008 or 09 or so. Way before all that cool stuff started being part of the DSLR's. It's a good camera, but still a lower end and older model. And unfortunately, it is not set up for a cable release either. I actually have the little case for my remote that came with the camera, but I cannot find the dang remote. As soon as it comes in from Amazon (or wherever I end up buy it from), it will show up. That is my luck.

And as Larry noted on his, the remote function is a little wonky to work with. It almost makes me want to upgrade to a newer camera! If only my wife would let me...sigh...
