Great shots! I was up on Sanitas watching it unfold over Boulder, but didn't get any pictures that were worth a damn.

Thanks for sharing those. I screwed up and didn't set my alarm to wake up. When I did wake up there was just a remaining bite out of the side of the moon. At least I could see it from my bedroom window!

Nice! I also did a 10 minute interval, but I changed the setttings on my camera a lot. For the image, I just directly cropped down to 900pxx900px I really just wanted to play around with my Canon EOS-M and my 400mm lens.

Glad you guys enjoyed! I never actually saw it with my own eyes; set the camera up and went to bed!

Very cool; I'd wanted some close-ups, but I'm a bit long lens-limited, so decided going wide was the thing to do. :)
