I wish I'd used a longer lens for this, but I rather like the colors in the stars. This is one of my few attempts at night photography-a lot yet to learn, I think. Please click for a better view.  Comments welcome.

Nikon D750, 300 f/4 lens, o.6 sec, f/7.1,ISO 8000, manual, tripod. Frozen fingers!

Nice detail in the Moon. Yes, the stars add a lot to the image. Frankly I like the wider than traditional view as it really makes the Moon just hang there in space and gives a sense of scale.

I think you've done a fantastic job with this moonshot, and I also love the wider view and the scattered stars. Well done, Cindy!

I too like the stars...it presents the moon properly in its place above us.

Thanks everyone- I might just go out there again for some more attempts on the moon in her more ordinary appearance. Kind of fun.

The star field is what makes this one for me.
