Fantastic sight of a large red Full Moon at the start of the Eclipse. I was fortunate to be on top of a large building over looking London to get a good early image of the partial Eclipse. I was really interested in the different colours produced which are shown in this montage which were the real colours at the time. My first experience of a partial Lunar Eclipse and we were blessed with a nice clear night.

you were lucky at OO - great report, thank you.
When I saw your driving animation I thought it would be cloudy but turned out to be a clear night. And it's definitly a good idea to LOOK through the scope; I - too - find myself very often staring at the lcd and missing to look around the wonders with your own eyes...
Late last night I observed the 'half-shadow' (do you say that in english???) eclipse of the moon. 'Normal' people would not recognize it but it was nice to see (the bright southern highlands around crater Tycho dramatically dimmed) and I photographed it with a standalone PANASONIC Lumix DMC FZ-30 digital camera on a tripod.
We start with 'moon behind clouds' in the evening (ISO80, 280mm, f/3.6, 1/50s & 2s)...
photo get a clear view at 2006-03-15 00:45 CET - about the maximum of occultation - (ISO80, 670mm, f/11, 1/100s)
...and a small animated gif
