In the 10th of December 2011 Earth orbit passes between the SUN and the MOON to cause the last eclipse in 2011.
The Moon appeared to my naked eyes at 5:12pm it was in the ‘Earth umbra’ so it was not clear and very hard to make a focus on it, I used my Nikon D90 with Sigma 50-500mm lens and the 2x converter mounted on a tripod.

Here is the first shot ..
