Great image. Acquired with a 80% illuminated moon-kudos!

Thanks Mike.........Narrow band filters really do the trick sometimes :-)

I worked on this one a little more, then cropped & rotated.

Well done Brendan, looks better with even more depth and the star spikes look good.

We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills

Thanks John. In truth I am not 100% with the star spikes. The "general public" seem to like them (judging by reaction to many pictures on the internet) but I myself am not too sure they enhance the end result. They are certainly very handy for covering up blotchy stars (which are all too common when doing narrow band|). :(
In this instance, they were in, they were out. In the end I put them back in....without being too heavy handed with them.
Me: I am still undecided if they are a good thing or not. :unsure:

Very nice shot there, I'm not sold on the star spikes either, they look a little wide to me/
I'd imagine they should b a little thinner/sharper maybe, great shot all the same.

Thanks for the comments Dave. I think I will have to lean on the side of no artificial spikes too. I thought I was being very light handed with the spikes when I put them in....but when you know they are there it is so hard to ignore them.
For comparison - here is the original - with no artificial spikes.

Great Image Brendan. You aren't in Spain during October by any chance?

Hi Kevin,
Hope to get to Spain around 2nd October - and will be there for the rest of the month. I'll send you a PM with email and phone number. Feel free to contact me if you want to meet up.
Brendan.
