I really like images composed like the third one. There is such a sense of the moon being a really beat up old sphere. . .

I imagine you are simply putting the webcam to the eyepiece for these images? (Some years ago I read about taking apart these devices and using them for prime focus imaging.)

Good work and keep at it.
