A composite of ~ 70 photos

Six years ago I took some pictures of the moon and the stars – now here’s a composite of some. The background was made of about 50 images using a normal 25mm lens, with my camera riding piggyback on a large telescope in Darmstadt. The moon itself was composed of 21 images without using any lens, my camera was attached directly to my own 750mm telescope which I had to track manually.

I cropped and scaled this to 1920×1200 pixels to use it as a screen background or “wallpaper” on my monitor:
