Thin Crescent Moon

Sky-Watcher 100 ED on Kenko NES mount, Canon 450D DSLR prime focus at f/9, ISO 1600, 1-sec exposure, 23-Dec-2011, Basud, Camarines Norte © Anthony Urbano

The image shows a 4% illuminated crescent moon captured when the moon was only about 10 degrees above the eastern horizon. Longer exposures to reveal the earthshine was not possible due to poor sky conditions.
