    I'm using an old Pentax K10D with a 10 megapixel sensor. It's not noted for it's low light performance so there is quite a bit of noise at higher ISO (1600 max).

    Murphy's Law in full effect between clouds, buildings and the battery pooping out I did manage to get some shots. Fortunately the view was clear on the other side of the building when the battery died and I was able to move to my balcony and use a power adapter.

    The light was so dim I had to guess at the focus. Unfortunately the focus ring got moved when I was relocating the camera. That plus clouds and high speed noise - not the sharpest pictures.






    You can see Spica in the 3rd shot. I'll do a more consistent crop and adjust the exposures later. Time to hit the sack

    PS: Here are some awesome shots on the Pentax Forums

    Bummed I didn't get to see it. Was overcast and snowing last night.

    Been a long time since I got to see a blood moon.
