8 day waxing crescent Moon occults 95 Virginis

The dust in the air from the Sahara abated last night for a nice view of the moon just past first quarter. I noticed a star about to be occulted - the 5th magnitude 95 Virginis and took a few longer exposures to be sure and catch it.

Questar 3.5" telescope with Sony a6300 camera at prime focus. Moon exposed 1/30 sec at ISO 200. 95 Virginis 10 sec. Best 8 of 50 images stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos. Final crop and HDR composite in Photoshop.
