Very cold night for Dec/10`s lunar eclipse. .It needs a crop to center it ,just extracted a jpg from the raw to post it.Exposure was 1.6s and it gets harder to find focus as the moon gets dimmer...did I mention it was very cold??

Hi Scott,it really was only about -20C but the dew point must have been lower.The K10 worked well untill about a half hour when it started taking green moon pictures,would return to normal after turning it off and back on.Would be interesting to see how the K5 would perform in the cold compared to it but have to wait until I wear it
