Total Lunar eclipse

6°C, clear & still.

Moon enters penumbra: 20.18
Moon enters umbra: 21.30
Totality begins: 22.44
Mid-eclipse: 23.21
Totality ends: 23.58
Moon leave umbra: 01.11
Moon leaves penumbra: 02.24

My pictures came out better as totality came to an end, I had the hang of it by then. What made the difference?
*Use the tripod extended as little as possible
*Use the delay timer to release the shutter- DON’T touch the camera
*Use manual exposure and spot meter mode
*Bracket exposures
*put on a warm jacket
