So Wednesday night saw me standing outside for nearly two hours documenting the moon.

Part way there

A little further

Exposed for the dark side, makes the bright bit *very* bright

A mid-way exposure

Then I remembered I had Dad's 250mm lens.  Just cropped here, so the picture is bigger, but I don't think the quality is there - it's very soft.

Another one

This a 30 second exposure so I could capture Neptune - which is in the very top right corner of the picture

Back to my lens

Totality is finished now

And a bit more out of the shadow

At this point I gave up and went to bed

I only managed to watch it for 5-10 minutes around 5:15 AM local time. I didn't take any pictures, but it was very impressive. :D
