    Last night I was taking some shots of the moon as it was rising. When reviewing he shots, there was the moon, but also a reflection of the moon in the picture. I had the camera mounted on a tripod, used a wireless remote, and there was no water to cause a reflection... I used a Nikon D90 with a 55-200 zoom.

    Does anyone know what happened and how I can get rid of the extra moon?

    Thanks!

    Looks like lens flare to me.

    You have completely blown out the moon, perhaps not realizing how bright the moon is. It should be considered as bright as the sun. Next time try with an aperture around f/8 and shutter speed around 1/160s. Adjust up and down from there.

    I'll give it another try tonight with your suggestions.

    What is lens flare?

    Flare. It is really interesting with lenses that have bad flare or are multi coated, I have had shots where there are dozens of multi colored moons or suns.

    Wow!

    Focal Length: 200.0mm (35mm equivalent: 300mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.050 s (1/20)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv: 1600

    Cut that ISO WAY down and get that shutterspeed down! You should be able to crop it nice and close also.

    I have just a cheap superzoom....

    Focal Length: 63.3mm (35mm equivalent: 380mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.0010 s (1/1000)
    Aperture: f/3.5
    ISO Equiv.: 100
