Nikon D800 with Rokinon 500mm F6.3 mirror telephoto lens
Waking up early this morning, I checked the sky and for a while, it touch and go! It was cloudy! But then my luck changed and I was able to take this picture of the Blood Moon today at 5:25 CST with my Nikon D800 and Rokinon 500mm F6.3 mirror telephoto lens using the settings of 1/30/sec at Hi2 ISO(maximum ISO). The sky was less than ideal but I got the shot nonetheless...
