      i took a few shots as well, but i wonder why the digital SLR renders the moon a lot redder than it actually was to the naked eye. having seen lots of other examples of the lunar eclipse on flickr, the majority of them seem to be a lot redder than how we would've seen it...

      Very nice! I had hoped to gut up super early and see this formyself, but I was too tired and my lens won't zoom in as far as I'd like to get a shot of the moon.

      Surprisingly I hadn't even seen a shot of the eclipse until I came here, so nice work!

      nels1 - just a guess, but I think there's a lot of infrared that you don't see but registers on the red pixels in the sensor.

      jurvetson - you hand-held a 400mm night shot? You wacky guy.
