My first attempt at layers in Photoshop. Edges are a Challenge!
Moon was shot straight up to reduce atmospheric dust / ice crystals!
AF-S NIKKOR ED 400mm 1:2.8 D
FYI: Moon should be shot 1-2 days before/after Full-Moon to get
Better Cross Lighting (more detail in creators from shadows).
Moon Light Exposure F-11 1/125-250 sec. 100-ISO.
Same as a Bright Sunny Earth Light Day!
Interesting information; Large Crater in lower right is called Tycho named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe.
Diameter 85 km/52 miles; Depth 4.8 km/2.98 miles
The crater is sharply defined, unlike older craters that have been degraded by subsequent impacts.
The interior has a high albedo that is prominent when the Sun is overhead,
and the crater is surrounded by a distinctive ray system forming long spokes that reach as long as 1,500 kilometers/932 miles.
Sections of these rays can be observed even when Tycho is illuminated only by Earth-Light (sunlight reflected off the Earth).
Foreground; Early Morning Sunrise at a less know Sedona Red Rock formation. 20 minute hike to one of my favorite morning locations !
AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm 1:2.8 ED
Smiles-Thank You for Viewing!
