Lunar Eclipse Photos

Got excited about the lunar eclipse last night and decided to sit out in the cold for 2 hours photographing it... really didn't plan on the 2 hours bit. Photographing the moon was way harder then I ever thought it would be. For one it's terribly difficult to focus on 100th a portion of your view finder. And second, there's a ton of settings that accomplish a clean photo but it's hard to figure out the best one. A medium range ISO, about a 1" shutter speed at a low Fstop seemed to do the trick in the end.

Btw, next lunar eclipse during the winter solstice isn't until 2094... do your best science.
