When I took a walk around the neighborhood to keep my circulation well maintained, I saw a beautiful moon rising the day before I took the photographs above. It motivated me to put on the EF 100-400mmL II lens in the first place. I stood on the side of the road out in front of my house and took a few pictures. I wasn't particularly motivated and even used P-Mode for the first two shots. I don't usually bother to shoot the moon in this phase but I ended up with some interesting lunar crater details. The sun was literally setting as I took the picture below...

Hi Marco,

Great review as always from you! I just discovered that I took a very similar image of the moon at almost exactly the same phase just a month earlier with my M5 on a small telescope (posted before on the looking up thread). Details resolved by the 100-400 lens are pretty impresive given that your image was taken still under daylight conditions.
