Thanks, Geoff, I don't think I could get a reasonable star background due to the moon blowing out the shot. The really bad shots had a couple stars towards the edge but that would not be representative of the whole background. FYI this image is a composite of two shots formed into three layers in photoshop. The third layer is a low opacity layer with the blown out moon glow.
