Very nicely done. Love the detail. Most people (including myself) have taken moon pictures when it is full. The partial moon seems more interesting.

Thank you very much Asnow.

One rule of thumb i have always tried to abide by is NEVER shoot a full moon. So much more detail will show in a partial shot of the moon surface as the texture/craters really show where it fades into shadow.

I agree
