  1. I was fortunate enough to have an unobstructed view of the moon from my home driveway ( I was unwell with a cold, so unable to go elsewhere ). My set up was Canon 550D, sigma lens 150-500mm, tripod and a remote.
    from the red moon to the full moon eclipse ( bottom to the top) the settings I used were - and all shot with the lens at 500mm. 1) F/6.3,1/5, ISO 800 2) F/6.3,1/5, ISO 800 3) F/6.3,1/5, ISO 800 4) F/6.3,1/3 ISO 800 5) F6.3, 1/6 ISO 800 6) F/6.3 1/2 ISO 200 7) F29 1/5, ISO 100 8) F29, 1/5, ISO 100 9 ) F29, 1/8 ISO 100 10) F29, 1/8 ISO 100 11)F29 , 1/8 ISO 100 12 ) F29, 1/30 ISO 100 13) F29, 1/30 ISO 100 . All were taken by RAW and Jpeg - Photoshop 10 was used to make the composite. New canvas, then I placed the photos in order and used the eraser to tidy up any overlapping. This composite is made up only of the Jpeg files straight out of the camera no editing was done to them . 1st photo was taken at 6.40 the last photo was 8.01. I went from a high ISO to let the light in even though I was on F6.3, to a low 100 ISO and an F stop of 29 to give texture / shape /shadows
