Waxing crescent Moon ahead of the Sahara dust

I'm amazed that skies in Texas can be obscured by dust from the Sahara. Sunday, a nearly first quarter Moon looked great in the sky. With a dose of dust from the Sahara arriving Monday, I wanted to catch shot of the waxing Moon while transparency was still good.

A nearly first quarter Moon from Austin, Texas. Questar 3.5 telescope with Sony a6300 camera at prime focus for 1/20 sec at ISO 200. Best 8 images stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos. Final crop and exposure adjustments in Photoshop.
