The moon is actually about 27% of full, but it was the first moon of the new year.
My remote wasn't working, but I set the camera up on a tripod and used the timer and that combo worked perfectly. I've never been able to get detail of the moon during night before.
I've been capturing a couple of moon pictures during the month and hope to publish a set in February. It's a lot more challenging capturing the moon than the sun. On cloudy nights there's little hope of catching a glimpse and in the cold air, I'm not willing to wait around. I also have trouble remembering to get outside in the middle of the evening. I can't always capture a good picture during my daily commute.
