    ...here are my moon shots. But I also have a question to ask you guys. How do you go about taking pictures of stars? I would like to take a picture of the stars and then photoshop the moon into the picture so I could have the best of both worlds? What settings do you use when shooting stars?

    Personally, I prefer low ISO, long exposure with the aperture wide open. There's a ton of variables on what will work best, but start with a 30 second exposure. Light pollution is a huge factor... much moreso than with the Moon. Find as isolated area to shoot as you can.

    I live as far out as you can get in my area. Will a 30 sec exposure show star movement?
