Lunar Eclipse

I stayed up late last night to watch the lunar eclipse.

This was a new experience with the D7000, as I had to figure out a lot of settings manually.

This was a great time to test out setting up user modes (U1 and U2), since I knew that messing up with all the different settings will be next to impossible in the dark. so I set up shutter speed to 320, aperture to f9, ISO to Auto and stepped down the exposure by -5 initially. I adjusted exposure compensation a bit, but the result I got is decent considering this was my first time experimenting. The picture was taken with the 200mm zoom lens.

I did almost no post processing with this picture, except some cropping and some slight exposure adjustment.
