Equipment Details:

Nikon D750, Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 zoom with Nikon AF-S FX TC-17E II (1.7x) Teleconverter

Post-processing Details:

Dropped the exposure, highlights and shadows as the original was slightly over-exposed (the moon was really bright!). Adjusted saturation and luminence of the orange and yellow for a more natural look.

Image Details:

Went out to get a comet shot but the moon was shouting 'hey, over here!' Low on the horizon and behind thin clouds it had a lovely soft amber glow and it almost appears to be in front of the clouds lending the image a 3d effect.
