Lunar Eclipse -- Why so blurry?
-- hide signature --

There was a lunar eclipse last night, peaking at 3:37 a.m. I took this shot at about 3:20. I used a panny FZ-7 on a tripod with the "night scenery" mode which gave an 8-second exposure. All my images turned out this blurry. Since I used a tripod, what could have caused the blur?

1. Pressing the shutter release button instead of using the timer?

2. The moon moved in 8 seconds?

3. I am still not seeing clearly after getting up at 3:15 to take the shot?

Any ideas?
