comment Contrast Hol Hamo'ed Torah readings for Pesach vs. Hol Hamo'ed Succot
@DanF: The reason I did not place it as an answer is that I had the same concerns. However I did find it interesting enough to offer it as a comment.

comment Said Kiddush Levana prior to three days after Molad - Does he say it again?
@DoubleAA: The Be'er Hataiv does not say what happens if he says it prior to three days. Although I do agree with you that most likely he would issue a ruling as you say. I would accept an answer that would include a source saying that is one makes Kiddush levana prior to the three days, one does not have to repeat it. I am upvoting your answer, however can not accept yet.
