These photos of the Thin Crescent Moon were taken without the use of computerized chasers or automatic finders.
I took a very young moon with extreme difficulties. I didn't see the moon with the naked eye, not even on the camera screen.
I knew however that at that moment he was passing in front of my goal. I realized that I had shot it by opening the raw file on the PC and increasing the contrast. The scythe at sunset, however, I saw it with the naked eye.

I also made a short video with the sequence of shots.

Age Moon: 1Day and 18 minutes.
Camera: Nikon Coolpix P1000

Location: Modica - Ragusa
