The Moon Is Not Made of Cheese

The night after I photographed the recent September moon during Waxing Gibbous phase, I headed outside and shot it again.

Here is a closer view of the moon's craters during its Waxing Gibbous phase on 7 September, 2014.

In this more recent image (24 hours later), more of the moon was visible.

This time I have gone for a different composition, and focused more on the craters and shadow-laden edge of the moon.

Again I captured the moon with the longest focal length I have - 1,120mm - by stacking my 1.4x and 2x tele-converters onto my 400mm lens.
