Mars Opposition 29th Jan 2010

The photo below is a merge (via photoshop) of two images taken seconds apart on the night of the 29th Jan 2010 from my home in Surrey, UK. This was done to get the detail of the lunar surface in one short exposure (1/2500 of a second), and a long exposure (0.3 of a second) to get Mars on the extreme left and the cloud effects. Apart from merging the moon's surface detail onto the second photo I have not retouched these photos in any way.

1) Canon EOS 450 - Focal Length 120mm, F5.6, 1/2500 sec, ISO 800. This was to get the detail of the moons surface.
2) Canon EOS 450 - Focal Length 120mm, F5.6, 0.3 sec, ISO 800. This was to get Mars and the cloud effect.
