This daytime image of the Moon was taken when the Sun was 4 degrees above the horizon.  Five AVIs were taken between 1508UT and 1514UT.  After processing in RegiStax the final images were combined using Windows ICE.  The resultant image was then contrast stretched using GIMP.  The only filter used in the optical train was a Baader Fringe Killer Filter to reduce the halo effect around bright objects
