Waxing Gibbous Moon 70% of Full

I haven’t posted a moon photo in quite some time with cloudy (and busy) nights being the primary culprits. I spotted a waxing gibbous moon on the way home tonight and set-up the telescope just past sunset. Tonight, I experimented with taking photos in RAW and seeing if I could recover more shadow details than from plain JPEGs.

Looks quite a bit better than the last round.
