Your shots look great, especially considering the focal length you used.  Here's a few from my evening:

Moonrise over the Wasatch:  Sony A7R w/Canon FL 1200mm f11 (@f22)

Before the eclipse: Sony A7R w/Canon FL1200mm f11 (@f22).

Blood Moon:  Sony A7R w/Canon FL 1200mm f11 (@f11)

The lens was fun to shoot, but I definitely need a better tripod!  Was hampered by slight wind and some very wispy cloud cover as the eclipse started.  The blood moon shot was ISO 6400, f11, 1/4 sec exposure - guess that's what happens when you have a slow lens and not much light

Images were RAW processed a little in Aperture for exposure and contrast, and very slightly cropped.  I really need to learn how to work with RAW files - this is one of my first attempts.  I'm sure someone who knows what they are doing could get a much better image out of the file

Cheers,

David
