Correct, this refers to a gibbous moon. But I don't think he got "crescent"
and "gibbous" mixed up. He was talking about two different things in that

He wrote "another way" of referring to a "crescent moon". This means
that {maS loQHa’ So’lu’bogh} is a synonym for {maS’e’ loQ So’be’bogh QIb}.
A "moon that is considerably/appreciably hidden" is the same as a “moon
that a shadow doesn’t slightly hide".
