2 days ago I went to a nearby mountain to shoot the milky way as it was the first night without clouds for a while. Unfortunetly by the time I arrived the moon was starting to raise opposite side of the milky way core (that I was shooting), I used my usual ISO 800 SS 10 and 13seconds stacking, but once at home I saw in the results that the milky way was more faint than in my usual sets.

Could the moon rising behind a mountain on a far side affect the milky way in photos??

It adds extra light.
