Why would you want advice? That's an excellent photograph, and I can't think of anything to change.

Beautiful shot, the only thing I'd say is that the noise around the moon looks like stars so that's fine, but the noise in the shadow part of the moon looks the same and is a bit odd as it make it look like the moon has been sliced in half.

The detail you've captured on the moons surface is stunning though, congrats.

Agree with paulcliff...looks decidedly odd seeing stars or noise similar to those surrounding the lit half of the moon where only shadow should be.

I agree.
That's as good as I've taken with my telescope, it just needs the noise cleaning up.
Really nice.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

I'm confused about a few things.

Why is this a 5x bracketed exposure?
- And was this done via a feature in camera, or 5 shots combined as an HDR/noise reduction process afterwards?

Was pixel shift used?
