Hey guys, here is a photo I took of the supermoon through a roof window today

Took the shot with DA 21mm ltd that I just recently received for the wonderful starbursts, then used a DFA 100mm focused to infinity and exposed for the moon. Enfuse was used to merge the two shots. The camera was on tripod and did not move between the shots. I just had to use different focal lengths because even though the 21mm rendered a nice, sharp moon, it was just much smaller than the defocused halo/diffraction spikes. There is obviously some flare due to long exposure, I did not want to clone it out. I did not use Photoshop or Gimp, I don't even have them installed!
