The Waning Havest Moon on 2023-09-30 21:51 CDT from Austin, Texas. A HDR composite of iPhone 5 Pro Max images. Background: ISO 12500, f/1.78 1/50 sec 24mm. Moon 9 stacked images ISO 50, f/2.8, 1/497 sec in Lynkeos. Processed in Topaz denoise AI and recomposited with background in Photoshop.
For the curious here is a 100% scale crop of just one of the moon images at 125 mm:
These images were made with the iPhone camera app. The moon is overexposed in most images from this app even reducing exposure compensation to the minimum. I increased the size of the moon in the frame by using a 25x digital zoom which allowed a good exposure with the app. These images were rescaled back to 5x. I've also been able to get well exposed images using another camera app with full manual exposure control that supports the new camera app.
