Blood moon and lunar eclipse 4/5th April 2015

I stayed up until the wee small hours of the morning so I could watch the blood moon (not very bloody) lunar eclipse. I've not had much success taking photos of the moon before because I wasn't entirely sure how to use the settings on my  camera. So I Googled it! I have a 55-250mm zoom lens which really doesn't zoom in close enough so I had to do a lot of cropping, and the result isn't too bad. As it was daylight saving last night too, where our clocks went back an hour, I at least gained an hour back of sleep. Here are the photos.
ETA: My camera is a DSLR Canon EOS650D

Definitely worth staying up for I reckon, not sure when I'll get to see one again.

However you choose you spend this long weekend, 
have fun.

And Happy Chocolate Day!!
Stolen from the internet!
