The term "super blood moon lunar eclipse" has quite a nice ring to it, don't you think? To be sure I got to see all stages of the eclipse, I set an alarm for 02.10. Got up, got dressed, set up my tripod on the balcony and started shooting.

My choice of camera for the event was my Nikon D3S with a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR. Manual mode, DX-crop (1,5x crop factor) and of course I shot in RAW. The D3S handles high ISO:s like a dream, which came in very handy once the moon turned red. To freeze the moon in the frame, I had to push the ISO to 12800. Still, I'm quite pleased with the result.

The next time a super blood moon eclipse will occur will be in 2033. I'll make sure to be ready on that day, and equip myself with a super tele lens!

At the bottom of this post you'll find a wide shot of the blood moon, because after all, the super moon was quite small in the sky.
