That's amazing.
Is this a 100% cut?
Would you share your setings?

Thanks.

Re: D300 and our moon ....

You did very well to deal with the internal reflections on the window of your space rocket, did you use a polariser?
In all seriousness, however you did it. its a great capture.

Skeptical

Taken using a 50mm/1.4? I'm glad you didn't point your flash at my city because if its powerful enough to illuminate the moon, you would vaporize us here on earth.

What is the name of the promenent feature in the right center? It faintly resembles the crater Tycho... which is near the moon's south pole. If it is Tycho, you could not stand anywhere on Earth to get that angle on it.

Its a wonderful image on its own merits, but I believe its more digital artistry than pure photography.

I was out there on the night of the eclipse with a 300mm and a D300. I know what I got and am also skeptical of this image with a 50 1/4

A model... yes

You may be right. I say this because of the lighting angle. If the crater is Tycho, the moon is illuminated from the wrong angle. Also, the glare/reflection of the prime light source (sun) would not be so prevalent at the location it appears in this image.

You see the relection of the sun in photos of the Earth from space... primarily in the oceans.

Not that space has an absolute up or down, but this is just the wrong lighting for the area near the moon's south pole. Its like the viewer is "underneath" the moon and the sun is behind you.

Still, a great image.

Re: That's moon

It can be one of many crates on the moon. Tycho is on the south . we can't see it in the picture but we can see in the picture . the crate Tycho can be seen from Europe (where the OP lives). The crater we see in his picture looks inside an "ocean" so it's not Tycho IMHO.

Re: D300 and our moon ....

That's a pretty good model with some nice lighting technique.
