Lunar eclipse:



Here are the steps:
- woke up at 3AM
- install the tripod in the backyard, with the K5 and DA* 300 f4 mounted on it
- shoot the eclipse
- shoot the eclipse, try some settings
- shoot the eclipse, try some other settings
- shoot the eclipse, that was bad, try again the previous settings
- ...
- went to bed at 5h30
- had a bad day at work
- choose the 8 best shots and did some post-processing (lighten and sharpened a bit the darkest shots, especially those near the totality)
- merged them in photoshop, on a black background
- done!

And the exifs:

Great! Nominated!
I tried it in the last eclipse, but then clouds came in in the middle and messed up everything. Hope to have your luck next time!
