And the Moon joins the show ...

As I said in a previous post, the Moon joined the conjunction of Venus, Mars and Saturn (and Mercury) today.
I tried some photos of the conjunction a few hours ago, but I found it hard to photograph the Moon because of it's intrinsic brightness.

I took over 200 photos, but out of them a few dozens are good. You can see the best shots in this Picasa album.
In this photo you can see the Moon and the four planets, including Mercury. Compare to the sky chart below from Stellarium:

If you have any hints on how to take photos of the Moon, please let me know! :)
