ok, ok, it's not 100% handlehld either's, i'm no robot! here's how i did 
it: i supported the camera on the edge of my balcony's rail, to avoid 
shaking, but then i had to point it towards the moon with my hands to 
get the right angle, so the angle does depend on my hands while the 
level is safe on the rail. and then i held my breath in a zen fashion 
for that 1sec of exposure. ;)

certainly, but we're talking about an elipse, aren't we ;)
