Seeing Red (Moon)

This is my most recent photo in a few months of anything astronomical. The red moon is my experimentation with my solar filter. Iwasn't sure if it would come out, what it would look like if it did and what might be revealed. The graininess is due to the high ISO digital noise, length of exposure. Imperfect tracking makes it slightly less focused (or more blurred) then the superior top image, certainly on par with my best moon photos despite not being a higher magnification mosaic.
