Full moon sky with a comet kernel visible over the mountains. I first registered and stacked the sky, then made a fusion with one raw for a still image of the mountains (otherwise the mountains are blured by the movement of the mount). I used a raw for comparison to get the same colors and aspect of the mountains. The more noticeable difference is the comet that looks more green on the raws.
Of course, with the full moon, the tail of the comet is absolutely invisible.
