My son came running tonight...... "Dad, there's a "blood" moon". Sure enough, the moon was just rising through the twilight haze......red as a tomato.
The first and third pictures were taken with a Canon S2 IS at ISO 50, at 1/500 of a second on full zoom (12 to 1). I am not sure how that corresponds to a SLR telephoto lens of say 300mm. The second pic was taken with a Kodak Easyshare on full automatic mode.....with a partial zoom.
