In Australia tonight we had a blood red super moon as a result of a lunar eclipse, and despite the dire forecast the sky stayed clear.
Here are a series of shots I took from before the start through to the re-emergence of the moon into sunlight.
All tripod mounted a99ii and Minolta 500mm f8 AF Reflex, and all cropped to a degree to better fill the frame.
Even in total eclipse there was quite a bit of light on the lower edge of the moon.

1. Taken at 7:20pm. just the full moon.

2. 7:40 pm with the encroaching shadow of the earth.

3. 8:07 pm.

4. 8:43 pm and the orange cast of the earth's shadow well visible.

5. 9:10 pm, and this is at total eclipse, but with still quite a lot of refracted light on the lower edge of the moon.

6. 9:33 pm with the sunlight hitting the surface once again.

As a post-script for comparison, here's the image I shot using the same equipment during the lunar eclipse here on 31 January 2018 when the total eclipse was more fully in shadow with less refraction.

Unbelievable timing! Is that a composite, if I may ask?

Stunning telescope pics, Mikey, and I *love* that image of Capri, Francis.
Here are my attempts at the super-moon, the first a few days before, the second the boring one, and the third my artistic attempt! All shot with the Minolta 500mm Reflex on A7Rii.







For some reason the full-moon pics never look as sharp as the partials, but I'm very pleased with the definition of the reflex on shot #2. Sadly the white (black!) rose in shot#3 got blown over and broken in the gales. I'll have to see if I can make some cuttings take.

Wow Mike. Those are beautiful. Nice star points... clean.   Colors... just wow. The first has more impact for me with all the more varied colors... but both great.   

Need to complete my RGB set for planets - only have green. Or... maybe just a one shot colour cam. Have to see. 😆

I'm liking the new Beast, Mike! I'm looking forward to the stacked shots.   Are you ready for planetary stuff?

I agree about the moon/foreground impossibility. I suppose the secret is to get something on a very distant horizon so it can be as near to infinity as possible. That rules out tree branches and rules in sky scrapers etc...

Number 1 is a very creative capture Hezu! I LIKE it!   

Yes, I like it too, Hezu. Nicely done.
I tried for ages to get one of those with the moon sharp as well, but decided in the end it is impossible without faking it. Any lens long enough to get the moon decently large in the frame seems to have too small a DOF to get both sharp at the same time. I guess a sufficiently small sensor might do, but then you'd have to open the aperture up to get enough light ...

That's so true...
