Much better than mine, MM. What settings did you use? I'm no photographer, so I just used a "Starry Night" preset on my camera. The moon moved quite a bit in 15 seconds, hence all the blur (or maybe it was the hip flask of bourbon I was holding--to keep away the cold of course!)

Gary...it was probably the cheap tripod I ended up putting it on! I also had it "no flash" which is an "auto ISO" setting...nooo..I did not know this till I got the book out ahead of time!
Here is one I will call from "My artistic side"!

Great pictures, all. It was a really beautiful thing to see. The night sky was nice and dark and loaded with stars that became brighter as the eclipse progressed.

Beautiful pictures! We were promised clear skies, but got cloudy. Had a few good glimpses, but not enough to photograph with. Drats.

We had a good view but it was extremely windy and hard to get a clear shot even with a tripod.

Great Photographs!

Glad to see everyone out checking on the eclipse....

Of course, some of you had a warmer time of it.

Hey Jim, those are awesome pic's. We're here in Big Bend Texas, one of the darkest part's of USA, and darn, high thin clouds that fuzz'd up the view. Here's a shot I took just a couple hours after the eclipse:
