Disappointed with results from shot. The stars are pinpoint. The moon lacks details. I thought I got the best focus I could manually. Used Astrotracer 1.

You probably would have gotten more color and details with a shorter exposure. Light from the moon washed it out. Thanks for posting.

Not too bad, though, considering the ambient air you had to shoot through.
