The 7th day moon was fogged out near the Pacific Ocean last night, so, on seeing the marine layer returning late in the afternoon, I crossed my fingers and took this shot at about 5:00 PDT....it has a blue cast to it from the bright and clear blue sky near the meridian. An hour later the clouds intruded. Mare Imbrium makes an appearance to the N; Menelaus shines brightly S of the Mare Serenitatis, and the craters in the Southern Highlands are spectacular.

Thanks, Diomedes....a single shot using a Questar 3.5” mak/Cass and a Canon T7i. ISO 100 and 1/30th. I got lucky despite difficult focusing in bright sunlight. This suggests that midday shots, carefully Photoshopped may be quite possible. ....any experience out there on this forum?
