Lunar Eclipse

This morning at 3:10am the moon was in full eclipse, with the Earths shadow obscuring its face to give a dull red coloured object in the sky above.  The moon was very bright and at its closest to the Earth for some time when this phenomenon occurred.  My camera was struggling to make the image clear as I wanted to take all three of the pictures shown on the same setting with the same lens.  The image is at 1/50th of a second at F 3.6 using a 300 mm lens. ISO is as high as the camera would go.

At Stoke, the eclipse was not full - I suspect that the view was best in the south of England.
