    Midnight: 5° F (Wind Chill Effect: -10°F) and with treacherous sheets of black ice covering everything.

    But the clouds had cleared so I was outside and shooting at intervals between some scurrying back indoors for hot Espresso and to get some feeling back into my frozen fingers.

    Semi-eclipsed:

    Both hand-held with the 300mm PF because the conditions were far too dangerous to be messing around with a tripod!
    I could use the TC 2.0 for the earlier ones but the full eclipse was very dim so I had to abandon the TC and shoot with very high 18,000 ISO for those ones.

    Thank you both!

    Here is just one more in which the moon is about 80% obscured and which I shot between shooting the other two photographs.

    You can definitely see the face of the traditional "Man in the Moon" in this one!
