The moon by day

Well, there has been another sequence of dark and gloomy nights, so observation chances have been few. However after getting up the other morning I noticed the moon still in the sky at gone 9:00am. I wondered what sort of image that might make. It was quite low in the sky by the time I got things assembled. I took a single picture of it through the telescope. The contrast wasn't very good though.

I tried the movie mode, and stack up a number of images, together with a bit of post processing - and the results were somewhat better.

Doing even more processing and tweaking balances and so on, I got something close to a night image.
