Crescent Moon

The weatherman mentioned we had a space station flyby scheduled for last evening.  I needed to visit the airport anyway and grabbed the camera and tripod to see if I could get a shot. 

No luck there but we had a nice moon.  Here is via a 15x optical zoom.
I took several shots with varying settings and this came out the best.  So while I'm happy with the shot, I didn't take any notes so I have absolutely no idea what settings worked best.  I didn't get any smarter (which is the whole reason for taking the pictures!)   Maybe I can find something in the metadata.

The moon is lit by the sun, so the F16 rule is in effect: F16 and a shutter speed of your ISO/ASA = Optimal exposure.
