Crescent Moon in twilight

On Kitt Peak this week (as usual). Tuesday morning just before sunrise, we had a view of the crescent Moon in the morning twilight. Below and right of the Moon on the horizon are the Santa Rita Mountains with Mt. Wrightson the tallest peak and to its right, Mt. Hopkins where the Whipple Observatory and the MMT are located. This image was taken at 38mm focal length with the kit lens at f/5, 1/60 seconds at ISO 400.

If think that's blurry, you should see my pictures of the crescent Venus - I tried refocusing about 5 or 6 times, but never got satisfactory images of the crescent (you could see the crescent - it was just all blurry).
