Yes, I agree, 300x zoom would very much magnify the moon (or sun). But you can't tell, from looking just at the animal and mountainside, that any zoom at all was used. I think that that makes the human eye expect to see the moon look much smaller in comparison.

Nice shots, but it looks like the moon was placed in front of the clouds to me in both the original and the last one. Good job otherwise.
agreed. the problem is that in a cloudy sky like that, the moon, if visible at all, would be blurry and featureless. it looks like the clouds are behind the moon, and that's causing the feeling that something's not quite right.

My final cut. I wish I knew how to add backlighted contours to the animal...
