Cold Super Moon through high clouds

It's fun to have a challenge and see what can be done with adverse conditions. The December "Cold" Super Moon came along with high clouds from an approaching cold front. The Moon had a beautiful ring around it and the thin clouds glowed from the moonlight. Taken 2017-12-03 03:39 UT a few hours before the full moon.

Taken with a Questar 1350/89 mm f15 telescope with a Sony a6300 mirrorless camera at prime focus. Exposed for 1/30 sec at ISO 100. The best 8 images of 120 were stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos with final crop and exposure in Photoshop.

To get a better idea of the actual seeing conditions, the image below is resized from a single frame of the original data.
