Re: Partial lunar eclipse...

That cloudy eclipse shot worked out nicely Bill.

Yes I wasn't watching the settings Henry and just shot off some images before the clouds came back. I'd upped the iso to 640 but was still surprised how dark it had gone. IBIS definitely saved the shots. You did really well with your 50-500 shots. That lens was certainly performing well for you. Bet you had it on a tripod though

It actually came out a bit underexposed; I was using centre weighted metering and single point autofocus (Large)
I brightened slightly in DxO until it looked about right, though a bit noisy now

E-M1 Mk2 300mm-F4 @F6.3 200-ISO 1/2s

The camera was set up with an MC-20 on it, but obviously too long, so I took it off and tried one trial exposure/AF, then the clouds came in completely, and remained for the next 45 minutes or so.
Mine was also highly edited. I think I need to use that "P"rofessional mode with full matrix or center weighted. I am too much into "M"e mode these days...It's MY BAD.

Yes, on a tripod. It's just too heavy to be hand held. Those 3 shots are stacked. The one on FB was straight..it looked horrible.
