The Moon In Scorpius

Astrophoto Home Page | Home Page

This evening started with clouds and a moon in the sky until nearly midnight, so I took this time to try a high-dynamic-range (HDR) shot of the moon in the head of Scorpius.
This is a combination of 16 frames ranging from 1/2000 sec. to 15 seconds in 1-stop steps, processed in Photomatix, and final adjustments in Lightroom.
