    Re: Moon pictures

    Apologies to Wakefieldowl, it was not my intention to take over this thread.

    When I made the images last year, I also confirmed the moons in Stellarium and made alternate images with labels. That is a star in the upper right.

    Re: Moon pictures

    Getting back to the original topic here: I had a similar photo-op with the moon tonight. A thin overcast was creating a sort of moon-dog. Except there was depth and texture with the cloud cover.

    I used my 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to capture the image. I took over 70 photos, split into 3 groups with 3 different shutter speeds. I picked 1 image from each group, aligned the moon in each layer. The bottom 2 layers had very over-exposed moon, but the halo was showing well. Middle was a smaller halo, bottom layer had larger halo due to longer exposure. Top layer I processed to bring out some surface detail of moon, ignoring the halo. I layer-masked that top layer so only the moon would show in the stack. I experimented with the blend mode in layer 2 to get a pleasing result interacting with the base layer. Just flattened and 1 last sharpen filter applied before a resize and adding my watermark. Pre-processing with RawTherapee, final stacking and processing with GIMP.

    So now you get to see a method I would try. Maybe I could have just used the 3 images for a standard HDR edit. Still could try.

    @Marilynne Shouldn't this thread be in a different place?

    Thanks CS!

    Moved it to Low light & Night.

    Edit: Now that I changed it, I think it was correct. The original OP asked for help.

    Moving it again to Photography Q&A.
