Nikon DSLR with 800 mm Telephoto lens
Shutter Speed 1/320 sec

Cropped for a much closer look.

Image Details:

Waxing Crescent Moon at 31.9% Luminance . I took this image just as the sky was getting increasingly darker after sunset. There was a remarkable earthshine but it was hard to expose it properly.
