Lunar eclipse long exposure

I did a long exposure of 130 minutes. The aperture was stopped down to f/22 during the partial stage. At mid totality I blocked the lens with my toque for one minute. Then exposed for 30 seconds at f/2.8 then blocked the lens for another minute and then finished the exposure at f/22. That orange glow is probably a light leak from the knit. I should have used a lens cap, but my fingers were frozen stiff and I didn't want to mess around with putting the camera out of alignment. Note to self: don't use a knitted hat in the future to cap the lens.
