Here's a somewhat better version of the montage. You can see constellations now. Delphinus is obvious. That provides an angular scale which adds to the fun. What is the implied angular diameter of the Moon. Also, look at that waxing gibbous moon near the bottom... Notice anything funny??
By the way, there's a lesson here beyond astrophoto analysis. One of the biggest problems with the Internet is that captions are often added by "other idiots". So you have to look at the photo, see if there any issues, and then separately look at the photo with the caption applied. This is true of trivial matters like this Moon montage as well as far more important images, jazzed up with controversial captions to cause trouble.
