    Well done, Chad. Couldn't drag myself out. Too late, too early too cold!

    I was so bummed - our skys were cloudy and we couldn't view the Lunar Eclipse.

    Thanks for posting your photos of it. They turned out very nice - crisp and clear.

    VERY nice... and I'm going to say that your first photo is probably the best photo of the eclipse totality that I've seen. I also really like #2... I love the contrast of the "mares" (what they used to think were oceans back when they named them) are darker & richer in this one.

    Great work on both!

    Thanks for posting.
    We had cloud cover, so my waking at 3AM was to no avail.
