Loony open thread

I didn't stay up to watch the lunar eclipse, but after playing around with the settings of one of my cameras, did manage to get this shot of the full moon a few hours beforehand:

Taken with a Fujifilm FinePix S2500HD, manual settings at ISO 100 and 1/60th second exposure.  I would have played more with the settings but it was quite cold outside!

I digitally increased the contrast and darkened it a bit so the details are easier to see. (The picture is also heavily cropped.)

Default settings invariably gave a very blurry image.
