Yes! That was a nice lesson. My only decent moon shot is also a combination of the two and I had to work it for many days. If I had only waited until you posted... :-)

thanks for all the kind comments! it is a pleasure to share the fiew tricks I know :-)

Geoffs, i've seen your picture, it's interesting. Your situation was much more difficult than mine, you had more bright clouds, it was an hard job to get a picture with a natural flavour in those conditions.

To tell the complete story of my pic, one important step was to blur the edge of the moon (only the edge!) a fiew pixels just to make it merge smoothly with the backgound.

This is a trickthat needs to be pointed out periodically.We all get so caught up in the idea that our pictures have to be sharp as tacks that we ignore the fact that blur is a quality, neither good nor bad. It's just another of our tools. Thanks for your addendum.
