Tonight I went out to capture the lunar eclipse. Setup my tripod plus my Sigma 400/5.6 plus Kenko 1.5x teleconverter and happily snapped away to the tunes of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon":

Alas I didn't know there was one! Or maybe it wasn't visible here? Apart from the clouds around then... Maybe next time if I hear about it in time.

No joy here, I'm afraid. Both Sun and Moon have been relative strangers due to cloud and rain. Another rubbish summer. :evil:
