First quarter moon on 24.3.2018

Unfortunately, the weather seems to favour half moons. There have not been many clear nights, and when I was finally able to get out to do some photography, the moon was in the same phase as last time. I missed a crescent moon in between because it was on a work day and I had to get to bed early.

I tried to improve the quality of the shot, but this seems to be the best I can get out with 45 mm lens. Even with 2x cropping factor, it does not have a sufficient magnification. Focusing on the tiny but bright moon is difficult.

Waxing gibbous moon on 31.12.2017

The sky was mostly clear early on the last evening of 2017 providing a good view on the  moon before the fireworks started.
