That moon isn't real, is it?

It's a real moon. I'd have to look at the time in the EXIF data again, but off the top of my head this was taken maybe 5 minutes after peak for the lunar eclipse

Oh really, that's pretty cool than, I don't think I've ever seen a corretly exposed moon and the stars in the same shot.

I brought the moon down a little with local adjustments. However, during a Lunar Eclipse the moon is substantially darker than a normal full moon. It's pretty cool to watch "the stars come out" as the moon gets eclipsed.
