Last night was a rare triple-play of notable sky targets available from one spot within about an hour: the comet, the Moon, and planets Jupiter and Saturn.  More on the first and last in subsequent posts.

As for the Moon, its early crescent was already low when dark fully settled, trapped within my western treeline.  Still, I had brought my big telescope into my front yard, and so pointed it as best as I could.  NightCap took interesting afocal photographs.  I selected one for generous editing in PaintShop Pro, seen above, though the source is not much different.  I tried to give it a little watercolor and/or oil painting feeling.
