I used a Q and smc-A 50/2.8 macro, and got some decent shots. Will process some DNG files tomorrow

or maybe tonight - sadly it doesn't enlarge well but still nice at a long viewing distance.

Pentax Q plus SMC-A 50mm f/2.8 Macro - cropped & (over)processed DNG.

Thanks, Jim, and everyone else who wasn't SOCKED IN! I was SOOOOOOOOOO planning to hit that moon with my DA*300 and as many shots as I could (probably hundreds), until the clouds rolled in. As I had that camera sitting a couple feet away with that lens on it, I looked outside my door about 2 a.m. (this door always faces a full moon), and sure enough it was still raining.

I believe the dot to the lower right of your moon shot is Mars, Jim. I was watching the CBS Evening News earlier (recorded from last night), and Scott Pelley showed a photo of the Blood Moon with a fairly bright dot about that distance from it and said it was Mars -- said it's the closest to Earth it's been in YEARS! So Maybe tonight I can at least get a Moon/Mars shot, if it's not too cold... Had a real cold snap here last night -- freeze warning!

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!
