The moon is looking good tonight. A camera equipped with a zoom lens can capture it nicely but, like most things, it looks drastically different depending on the exposure.
The short exposure (above) captures the moon's craters and its smooth, dark mare, while in a longer exposure (below) they are overexposed but the faint earthshine is revealed.
I thought the earthshine looked better last night, but I suppose it isn't too bad tonight.
