Very nice asnow! May I ask what focal length you used?

Thanks Marko, I could see it all the way back from my Lake Erie trip driving along the 401 from London. Snapped this as soon as I got home around 10:00pm.
I remembered somebody saying (not sure if it was in this forum or podcast, or somewhere else) that because the moon is being lit by the sun, you need to use a daytime exposure. I therefore manually set the same exposure (on the 70-300 lens I rented) as I had during the day with the kite boarders. Even though I tried some exposure compensations, the best one was my first guess.
