The moon in a pinch

Yesterday evening around 5:30 I noticed the moon was fairly high in the sky and clouds were rolling in. It was still hours before sunset and there was a misty. I thought it might be fun to capture some images in hopes of working with them in Registax. 

Unfortunately, because (I'm assuming) the lack of foreground/background contrast, the software threw down  align-points all over the place, and I wasn't having much luck setting them manually. So rather than continue to play around in Registax, I fired up Photoshop to see what I could do with my hazy images. Between using setting a duplicate layer to multiply, opacity settings, and brightness/contrast adjustments, I was satisfied enough to share. 

Below is the image the above is processed from. For what it's worth, it's 1/30th @ ISO100.
