you are all welcome. I think the thing that bothers me the most is that the pics didn't turn out like I thought they would. Like I said I just have a point and shoot (Canon S3), and I'm not a photographer but all my moon pics from the past showed way more detail.

Last night I even grabbed a (cheap eBay) telephoto lens that I had stashed in my drawer. In the past, without the lens I would capture the craters, but last night... nothing. The pics from look flat and full of noise. I think part of the problem was that the humidity was high and I think the lens was getting foggy and washed out the detail. I should have got that no fog crab that you put on bathroom mirrors, but I wasn't prepared.

I guess I should be happy that I was able to witness it, but like I said before... I am my worst critic.

Here are a couple pics from a few years back... with no telephoto lens.

BTW the pics from last night are thumbnails. If you click them, they'll get bigger but they are still lacking detail.
