This x10 speed time-lapse extracted from a video shows the First Quarter Moon setting behind the summit of Murahwa Mountain near Mutare at 23.26 LT (21.26 UT) on 30 June 2017. The still image taken half an hour after sunset shows sharp detail along the terminator on the Moon. The camera used was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 in scenery mode with up to x60 zoom magnification.
