I pretty much watched it the entire way so far.

Remember the digital camera macro setting thread. Come on guys with digital cameras...post up a good pic of the moon in our shadow.

Stupid question, can you hold your camera that still, or is that on a tripod?

Tripod. That picture was 2.5 seconds long so it has to be perfectly still the whole time to be decently sharp. Quality improvements would be noticeable if I had a better tripod even

It actually doesn't zoom in that much though. bkwrangler's pictures are at 300mm while mine was only at 200mm so technically his was more "zoomed in"
