Waning Gibbous Moon

The sky cleared. With a clear view of the moon, I set up the camera and 300mm lens on a tripod. Skipped the 1.7 teleconverter.

The handheld shot from a few nights ago really isn’t bad. However, in tonight’s photo, I can really see all the craters along the edge of the moon.

I experimented with different exposures. Seems that leaving it slightly underexposed preserved the most details.
