This in an image of the moon, just one day old, with the earthshine (the glow of the brightly lit earth reflecting on the unlit surface of the moon).

Due to the dynamic range of this scene, it would have been impossible to capture details in both the bright and dark area simultaneously. 20 images were blended together to increase the sharpness of the bright area. Another 20 were used to get details in the dark area. The two resulting images were then composited together to try to show the moon as it was at that time.
