I'm a beginner in photoshop and i'm really struggling with it.

I do most of my stuff in lightroom, and in photoshop so far i have only really done cut outs and pasted the moon into another image.

I have looked for hours on youtube vids and cannot wrap my head around any of it (layer masks, etc).

Here are some screenshots of the images, one is the moon image and the other with that same image placed into another, and another of the zoomed in moon on the latter image. As you can see in the third pic, there is a pretty thick black line around it which i can't seem to remove.

In the videos they do start at a point that i dont even know how to get to or understand, so i'm guessing right now that maybe i need to step back and learn some other basics first?

That black line is due to over processing the file.  With less processing, it should look better.
