A prime-focus image with an exposure of 1/200th of a second at ISO 200. Waning crescents are IMO a little less interesting than waxing crescents because the greater extent of maria results in fewer craters on the terminator. But what craters there are can stand out very prominently.

The Meade MTS-SN6 is a 6-inch f/5 Schmidt-Newtonian from the 1980's.
