I had no idea what I was doing when I took these photos. I am not an astrophotographer. In fact, this was only my third time specifically photographing something not on our planet. This was also early in my return to photography; I had no real tripod, no remote shutter release, and I have no idea why I choose the 50mm instead of the 18-135mm I also had at the time (I believe it was something to do with sharpness). I captured these shots using a Canon 80D fixed to a Joby Gorillapod, that was anything but stable, on top of my car with a 10 second timer.
The Moon was captured at it's perigee (closest point to the Earth) and just proceeding a total eclipse (blood moon) making it nearly a Super Blood Moon. Unfortunately, the weather was not in favor of the eclipse and clouds covered the moon soon after these photos.
