In one of the Yahoo! groups that I am a member of, someone posted a shot of the moon but it was a lovely, colorful image. He had tweaked the saturation of the image using Photoshop. I have also seen this on well known astrophotographer Russell Croman's website. Such color saturation apparently works to highlight the different regions of the moon.
So, I went back and found my nice moon image from last year, taken through my 6" dob with a handheld digital camera (flukey!!!). Below is the result. Not quite as nice as Croman's, but an aesthetically pleasing image nonetheless.
