    Did you use Lightroom or Photoshop for editing? Are any of your whites clipping? If not, then the exposure should be fine. The sun is immensely bright while the dark side of the moon is totally dark. This type of image truly covers a high dynamic range. You could lower the highlights just a tad and see whether or not you like it. But if it isn't clipping (and if it was my choice), I'd leave it. That's just my own opinion.

    Perhaps just a touch overexposed. I addition to the spot metering, I use exposure bracketing for moon shots. Also a little post processing could help this slight overexposure.

    It looked beautiful but was too dim for me to get any decent images. :-(

    I ended up with the ISO cranked to the max and by the time post processing removed the noise, there wasn't any detail left. Oh, and it was exactly 0*F outside and I didn't hang around long to experiment!

    We had thick atmosphere tonight. Makes for yucky images. I also had to crank my ISO, and didn't care for the results.

    You have to have a night of 'good seeing" where, the atmosphere is somewhat stable and no clouds, or fog. We had a lousy night to shoot at the moon. I couldn't get even close to a crisp shot no matter what shutter speed.

    This is at the beginning, you can see a little shadow at the bottom left.

    This was later, but before full eclipse. Any attempt to expose for the darker parts totally blew out the top.

    I attached my D850 to my telescope with a special mount, and had to focus manually, which was very difficult outside in the cold.
