Waxing Gibbous Moon, 97% of Full

Another view of a waxing gibbous moon through the telescope. This is a blend of three different photos, and I tried to focus on a different part of the moon per photo. However, at close to full moon, the moon was a bit flat and I had a difficult time seeing the craters. The other problem I encountered is that the bundled tripod was not sufficiently stable, so any time I touched the focusing dial, the image was jittery for a few seconds.
