Shoot the moon

This is what my little digital camera can see of the moon from my back yard. I think this was only using 3x magnification. (I only just read how to activate the 4x digital zoom while taking pictures. I've zoomed in more by cropping the image, which was 98% sky in the original.)

Not too bad. Quite a few maria can be identified here. This is just a little after sunset, so the sky was still pretty bright - much later and the increased contrast between moon and sky would have produced an overexposed moon image.
