Missed it. My corner of Scotland seems to be the only part under cloud. It was the same last week with the Geminid display

I'm just a newbie but these are what I got between running in the house to warm up! It was freaking cold last night! Shot with my K-7, 200mm, f/5.6, 1.3s, iso 100

It was clear here - very - but getting a clear view of the NW horizon was impossible as the village is tucked on the south slopes of some hills. I hadn't used the car since Saturday and wasn't about to try to get it out in the dark this morning.

I did not think it would be that good because of high thin clouds. This was just before the eclipse started. I used the Tamron 55BB 500mm f8 mirror with 01F 2x TC, good enough for normal moon shots. This was at ISO 400 and 1/30s, uncropped:

Later on it cleared, so conditions were pretty good. What I should have done was taken off the TC or increased ISO, because shutter time ended up too slow - the moon moved during the exposure. I was too cold to think. This is at 1.5 seconds, cropped:

I have some images that might work for stacking, but I've never done that.

I had it all planned out and calamity stikes lol, Live in a heavily wooded area and right after it started tree limbs grew, Moved to opposite side of house and the damn wind was so heavy it made the outside light sensers putting lights on an off, next the cheap tripod is usally ok but the wind was heavy and gusting, boy could it shake, went to the front of the house and made a short makeshift tripod and mounted on my car roof, boy its like 15 degrees, ok little warmer now.....
