Moon and telescope. Man looking at a crescent Moon through a refracting telescope. This is a new Moon, only 3 days into the 28-day-long lunar cycle. The dark disc of the Moon is also seen, illuminated by earthshine (sunlight reflected from the surface of the Earth). A refracting telescope possesses a large lens that focuses light from celestial objects into an image.
