Might just be me but I really like the moon with a blue sky background. Less austere and sterile somehow.

Nice shots as well. Can you explain what the X and V significance is (sorry n00b question)?

Actually don't worry, got off my metaphorical online backside:

thanks Yearofthegoat, day moons are my Fav too, 80% of my moon image collection are day ones, I like the challenge. you would be surprise how many people don't know you can see the moon in the day, some just never look up. clear skys, charl.

Nice one mate.

You're right people just don't look up. I was setting up one afternoon for a spot of lunar when my neighbour came out and said "that's a bit early". I just pointed to the easily visible moon and the look on his face told me he had never noticed it in daylight before.

That's hilarious!

IIRC the first light from my Heritage Mak90 was a day moon. New kit excitement and couldn't wait for night time.

A bit OT but watched 'The Moon' on the iPlayer the other night. It's 11 years old now and has footage of then US President George Bush promising a manned return to the Moon. How things have changed...!
