The little Q can bring out the rather difficult details on the 4th day moon...from Endymion in the north of the limb, down to Cleomedes and Mare Crisium in the East, Langrenus, Petravius, and Funerius to the SE, and with some imagination, Helmholz to the far south.

Thank you for posting! I love a sliver of a crescent moon.

I should probably keep this to myself and just shut up and do it, but when I have a chance to start up with astrophotography in the new era of stacked images, I'd like to try shooting earthshine, as if it were any low contrast deep sky object, to try to generate detailed images of the moon as if the full moon (with a blinding bright overexposed crescent)

Hey, Ben...I tried to get earthshine in this shot...I really had to pump up the ISO, but here it is...glare and all. Early evening on March 24. I would bet others in this Forum can do better:

Nice.  I'd imagine taking a bunch of those and stacking them until the earthshine revealed the lunar features in some detail.
