I will start. Next time (2010) I am getting a telescope thingy . Tried with the Sigma 70-200 played around with a bunch of differnt setting and failed pretty bad. Oh well, I bet many got much better. If you did post here. Here are mine.

Believe it or not I was able to shoot it right outside my bedroom window!!! It's a good thing too 'cause it's a little nippy here tonight...

I got shots all the way up to full eclipse and then it clouded up, so I won't be able to get shots of the moon "un-eclipsing"... still I'm thankful for what I got!

Now this is where I really miss the Bigma. Taken with the Sigma 70-200 + 1.7 TC. Not as sharp as I wanted and cropped about 50%. The colour was good at least. I would have done a better job on the focus but it's -15C and a nice little breeze to freeze off the fingers. A viewfinder magnifier would sure help with this low light.

Nice, you got Saturn in the corner there. I tried that shot but Saturn came out squiggly. I need a sturdier tripod!!!

Dancel, was that an incamera double-exposure?

Here is my view, Sigma 135-400, resized down a touch to get the composition I wanted.

Here are the two best shots that I got. A lot of them came out blurry. So did these two.





I think the head on my tripod is slipping.
