Moon with YG filter (FZ38)

I tried using a yellow-green filter (Hoya X0; Wratten No 11) for shots of sunspots, as posted here:
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52190643 .

The filter seemed to provide some improvement in contrast, so I tried it for the moon.

Below is a shot taken with my FZ38 plus stacked Nikon TCs (E15ED+E17ED) using the yellow-green filter, after converting to B&W:

I think it did give some improvement over what I've been able to achieve without a filter.
