I was outside in -3 degrees taking a long exposure shot of the eclipse. I had 2 cameras. One for the long exposure 400 mm lens and one with a 70-200 lens and a 2X extender for single shots just in case the long exposure didnít come out. I weighted down the tripods because of the 30 MPH winds. I set the exposure for 1 1/2 hours and made a curtain to go over the lens so I could make an exposure every 15 minutes. Every 15 minutes I raised the curtain for 8 seconds. Unfortunately my field of view would only allow me 3 exposures that were in the frame in order to focus close enough to the moon to make it interesting. I did not know this until I saw the final result. This was my first experience with using the Bulb mode with timed exposures. I'm pretty happy with it considering the circumstances. Wouldn't mind an 800mm lens!!

I'm surprised this entry didn't ribbon given the unique composition and difficulty of pulling off such a shot. Well done!

Nice work! I enjoy making multi-image long exposures when the subject moves, so congrats on your success!
