You must have a super camera to get that first shot. Several years ago, my husband purchased a framed set of nine photographs titled "Phases of the Moon". Each photograph is exactly the same size as is the moon in each photo, but each shows a different phase of the moon so the entire set shows the full cycle. You might like to do something like that for yourself as much as you enjoy the moon.
Ooh, now that's an idea. Might have to attempt that!
