    OK, I was out getting in a little pratice before the lunar eclipse in two days. The first two times I tried to get moon shots it turned into just a white blob on the screen. I tried again and still the same results.

    So now I did a little research and found out what I was doing wrong. I kept thinking, like so many others, that since it was dark I needed a longer exposure. How wrong was that?!?!?! So here is what I was able to get tonight.

    Any suggestions? I did have to pull some of the blue out of the shot with Lightroom.

    Try to do a custom white balance while you're out there with a sheet of regular paper. Also, that isn't too bad... I think it looks a little too centered for my liking, but you can always crop it around since it's surrounded in black anyways. I like how you can see on the left side where it's half light/half shadow kinda.

    That actually is a crop so I could get it into Photobucket. I can easly move it over.
