Moon, Eclipsed, on a Rope

My Panasonic Lumix has a nifty digital image stabilizer, which makes it easy to take pictures with a shaky hand. But it got confused when I tried to take pictures of the total eclipse of the Moon on February 20th. I didn't have a tripod, unfortunately, and the image inevitably smudged. The problem was that the image stabilizer sharpened the smudge.

Oh well: you can see a bit of the copper colour of the eclipsed Moon in this one:
