Is anyone aware if a circular polarizer would have helped improve contrast of photographing the moon? I've never really done this before until last night.

Dang. There are some excellent shots on here. I'm almost ashamed to post mine. Almost.

I wasn't planning on shooting it, because I get up very early for work, so I didn't have my gear ready. Then I woke up in the middle of the night, looked at the clock, and threw everything together just in time to take this.

Thank you Jimmy :)
For the first shot I used a William Optics 66mm f/5.9 ( Focal length 388 mm ) and for the second a home made Newton telescope of 660mm f/4 ( 2640mm focal length ), both with a 5DmkII.

Composite of many photos from the April 15, 2014 total lunar eclipse, aka the "Blood Moon." The sequence begins at the upper right and finishes at lower left. The nine individual moon frames were chosen from the best of 70 shots from the full duration of four and a half hours. The Moon's color was different at the end due to atmospheric differences compared to when it was overhead. Some individual frames have had their exposures altered in post to seem more natural. The middle shot is when the Moon was fully in the Earth's shadow. The red hue seen is a reflection off the Moon due to the filtered reddish color of all the Earth's sunsets added up and mixed into the Earth's shadow cast on the Moon.

Just minutes before the eclipse began, the sky was 100% clouded up and snow was falling, as it had been all day. At 12:05am local time, two minutes before the first shot, the clouds fully dispersed and the seeing remained at 100% until literally one minute after the last shot was taken when it reverted back to a cloudy sky. The Chicago area is known for its lousy skies. After missing 90% of all eclipses, meteor showers and most other astronomical displays for decades, I feel very lucky to have seen this at all.

Technical details:
Most shots were handheld at 1/1600, F/8, ISO 800, and manual exposure. The middle "Blood Moon" shot at 0.8 sec, f/9, ISO 800 and on a tripod. All shots with "Daylight" white balance. Canon 5D3 and Canon 400mm 5.6 L lens.

Some stunning ones in this thread though :)

The red phase was quite dull here I found.

I try to use CPL filter (multi-coated HD one) but getting a moon's ghost image. :(

This is my take.

Here's a few of my shots.
I met up with Catclaw and we hiked it all into Papago up by the rocks near the lake...
it was a cracking good time. :) I learned a lot, and we had some serious fun trying our hand at
our debut lunar eclipse shoot.

Gear: Canon Rebel T3i, 2X extender, 400mm f/2.8L. The meant an effective 1280mm focal length with the crop sensor.
Overall, I'm not super happy with the noisiness of the blood moon shot, but that's the downside of APS-C.
It means I need to save pennies for a 6D! :D

First shot:1/200, f/8, ISO 100

IMAGE: https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3808/13889358353_26886243b0_c.jpg

Second Shot: 1/15, f/5.6, 12800
IMAGE: https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2831/13889689974_efd800e5ee.jpg

Canon 6D w/MagicLantern, 16-35 f/2.8LII, 100mm f/2.8L, 70-200 f/2.8LII, 300mm f/4L, and a lot of luck

Best filter is the one you Don't have:)
