The moon in total eclipse is very dark, I discovered.
My crop-sensor camera and f/5.6 lens was not up to it.
I saw some "cherry red" photos in feeds, but without technical details.
I used 1/125 second because I earlier learned that the moon is blurry at slower apertures. Without an astronomical tracking mount, the moon is really booking across the view, and a high-speed burst of shots gives different positions of the moon in the frame.
How big of an aperture and how high of an ISO were needed for some successful pictures of the moon in total eclipse, that are not visibly blurred when seen at a 3-inch diameter disk for the moon at reading distance (e.g. a snapshot print or phone screen), taken with dSLR on a normal tripod?
