Images of a 16-day-old Moon

On the evening of October 30 there was a lot of fog and high clouds in the air, but from 21.00 hrs UT till 22.30 hrs UT I managed to take a quick look at the Moon. The Moon was 16 days old and the terminator lay over the centre of Mare Crisium. I only shot

some images of the Moon, but did no serious observing of the details. The seeing was very bad and the clouds started to cover everything around 22.30 UT. The images below where shot with the Nikon Coolpix 4500 and three filters: UV/IR, Contrast Booster and Fringe Killer (all from Baader). I used the TAL 100RS 4-inch achromatic refractor and a 32mm Televue Plossl eyepiece.
