…I’m a moron. I was up at 03h30 this morning and out of the house just after 04h30, all in a quest to photograph the lunar eclipse. I headed off towards work and stopped along the way where there weren’t too many lights around and I had a good view of the moon, which was looking great. I set up my camera and tripod, dialled in my settings and took about 40 photos with different exposures and zoom settings. I was using manual focus with a trick to get my camera to focus to infinity, and was less than impressed when I got to work, downloaded the photos and found them all to be out of focus. At that point I realised that I had left out one step in the focus to infinity trick. I would have to do this when I can’t just go back to shoot again. Oh well, there’s another eclipse in 2007. Perhaps I will be less clueless with my camera by then.
