The detail on the craters and maria is nice. The three quarter phase is good.
Apparently, back in the day, people would often make two exposures, one for each lit hemisphere and stitch 'em together. I think it was to overcome the tendency to over expose.

Just to encourage all of you to shoot more than one photo of the Moon.
Left - single frame - Right - seven (only) frames stacked in RegiStax 6
Can you spot the difference?
Jos it is especially to you. I'd love to see your shots with more details.

Thanks. Looks great! I did try a couple of those stacking programs. I had two different ones.
I took video footage of the Moon, and went through the whole process of converting the video with VirtualDub, stacking with both programs, but the final result looked no better than one unaltered frame of video. I think those programs may work better with deep space objects which are hard to get clear images of from Earth. It wasn't of much use to me.I ended up stacking something like 30 frames from the video, or more!
It was very interesting to watch the programs at work though. One of them (I can't remember which) divided the moon up into segmented areas and worked on one area at a time. Very cool to watch.
