A long and exciting night of photography. Until totality exposure was very difficult with one section very bright the other very dark. The longer exposure allowed the stars to be seen but even in that time there was orbital movement from the moon.

Ditto mad-brewer and Kandykarml. Like having the moon in context, it almost sings, the lighting making it float/3D.

Nice job. The trio of stars does a nice job of breaking up the black.

Nicely done but I like the other lunar eclipse in the contest slightly better (but only slightly..)

I love the crop & your use of negative space. This is such an intersting spot to keep the moon at.
