Using my photos from two nights ago that didn't quite align, I was able to determine the correct moon altitude (about 2°30') and azimuth (about 70°45'). Back-tracking, that means the moon should actually rise at about 68° azimuth.
Now, if I can just find a time when the crescent moon will rise at 68° around pre-dawn twilight I can probably get a much nicer photo! I am pretty please with this one though, I just wish I didn't have to lighten the background in Photoshop so much. It's always something huh?
Using the visual search function on the iOS app, a crescent moon won't be in this position at sunrise until June 26, 2014 at 5:57am. A full moon won't rise at sunset in this position until November 18, 2013 at 6:28pm, or December 17, 2013 at 6:01pm, but then not again until December 2014.
