I took advantage of the clear melbourne sky tonight to try out the new HEQ5 and it just so happens that its a near full moon.
This is just a single exposure

Nice effort Paula!
A couple of suggestions:
- Do an 'auto levels' in CS5 to bring the levels up. Or play with the curves/levels yourself to make it a bit brighter. It's really dark at the moment.
- There's a lot of purple fringing. I'd get rid of it by desaturating the colour. Either use a saturation and drag it all the way to the left, or simply change the image to greyscale.
Hope that helps!

With your advice, I added another image my first post, I think it looks much better now.

Yes, I like that.
Most full moons lack contrast, this feels real
