Waning gibbous phase, a few days after Full. This is a late-night shot for me, taken freehand - standing on my back porch steps, trying to stabilize myself against the open storm door - because I couldn't find a spot where I could position my tripod and still have an obstruction-free shot of the Moon. It was taken at 60 fps, and contrast and brightness were enhanced. This helped to bring out all the craters along the terminator.
