Blur-dy Hell!

I took over eighty photographs of tonight's (I'm typing this just after midnight, hence the date) total lunar eclipse.

None of them has come out satisfactorily. This is partly due to the fact that my camera probably doesn't zoom enough to do such a job properly, but it's mostly due to the fact that I don't have a tripod and my hands have never been that steady in any case.

What I've ended up with is a lot of photographs of a Moon looking like a binary star system, or twisted into bizarre shapes.

Since, when all your best intentions go phut!, the only thing you can do is laugh at yo' own ass, I thought I'd show you a couple:

Moon looking like a mushroom

All hail the Cosmic Mushroom!

Moon looking like General De Gaulle in profile

One for our French friends here, as General De Gaulle clearly still watches over us all.
