Once in a Blue Moon... 

"The Moon is rarely visually blue. The term blue moon is the name for the third full moon in a season that has four full moons, instead of the usual three. The second full moon in one calendar month is also sometimes called a blue moon."1

Tonight's blue moon was the latter - the second full moon within the same calendar month - too rare an opportunity to miss.  Having never photographed the moon with my DSL before I had a wee play with th settings and came up with the follow images.  Not that I have a clue as to what the settings were for each of the images...
