Hi. This is two shots combined one of the stars taken with a 28-70 and a separate image of the moon taken with a 100-400

Thank you for your comment

Hi, thank you for your comment. I don't know a great deal about stars. I was aware that the astro comuninty (;-)a) would notice the moon being in the wrong position against the stars. But this was the only way I could think of to get the image that I had in mind, one of bright visible stars behind the moon.

Thank you for the information and tips, it is both interesting and useful.

Yeah no way that is with a 75mm lens. I don't get that much at 800mm.

I think the general consensus would be that if you're going to do a composite image (ie blend exposures of bright moon with background stars), at least match the focal lengths and location of the objects imaged. You would get absolutely crucified if you posted this on any of the astro-image forums like Cloudy Nights or IceInSpace.

Here's an example of one done right: https://www.flickr.com …/album-72157635471532899/ (external link)

PS this shot is a of the background stars in your image, but taken with tracking mounts, expensive CCDs and telescopes etc: https://www.flickr.com …/album-72157635471532899/ (external link)
Just to show the star colours etc.

Cheers. They are both great shots. As I mentioned I'm not an astronomer. I just wanted a picture of the moon with stars and by having a smaller focal length for the star shot I could get more of them in.

Thank you for the advice though. If I ever decide to take factually correct astronomy photos for atronomy forums I will follow your guidance

Well speak for yourself, I read the stars today and they said you're going to be a millionaire tomorrow, all you have to do is send me $2,000 via Western Union wire transfer to make it happen.

LOL - in the planetarium there will be at least once audience member per season who refers to me as an "astrologer". My quick response back to them is that if they persist in calling me an astrologer then I'm going to start giving them bad career advice, bad relationship advice, bad investment advice, and other made-up bits bad advice instead of talking about the universe. ;-)a

Haha apologies, I sometimes get astronomer and astrologer mixed when posting... a blatent example of my inexperience in this field.

Although, some seem to be reading quite a bit into my stars in this shot in which case.... astrologers! :-P
