Quick question .. from your description, are you saying this is a 29 shot "stacked" photo ???
Astrophotobear November 12, 2015
it's a 29 shot panorama - so the images are basically stuck next to each other with over lap for the panorama - as distinct to other forms of astrophotography stacking

The Light Within

Canon 6d tamron 15-30 @ 15mm F2.8 ISO 6400 25s x 29 image panorama.

I've been waiting to do a backlit shot with the moon for around 1 1/2 years now - conditions have never been good to do so for when I've been available. I went 3 times last year and despite clear forecasts, ended up being clouded out (I don't mind a bit of cloud though). So having the back lit conditions - the Pinnacles create some long shadows. I made some silly mistakes off course, but that's just part of life.

Apart from the moon - the zodiacal light streams up towards the core of the milky way.
