So is this a single exposure? Or Shopped?

Hi GeorgeLiv,
Thank you for asking. Sorry the details did not appeared.
A single shoot is not possible due to the poor dynamic range of a camera compared to human eye. While we can see the red Moon in the same time as the stars, you have to photograph them separately. An another problem is the apparent movement of the celestial objects during the exposure. To overcome all these, this picture is the result of the combination of 3 pictures.

Foreground : 2min at ISO 1600 (foreground sharp with startrails)
Stars : 2 min at ISO 1600 with tracking (stars sharp, moon over exposed, foreground blurred)
Moon : 20s exposure at ISO 200 with tracking (moon sharp in an unstarred sky)

Kind regards

I forgot to tell that the tree pictures were taken from the same location though the same lens and at the same time (one after the other). So the framing correspond to reality.

Kind regards,
