    Re: Moon montage flaws... how many can you find?

    Here is what the photographer had to say about the composite image:

    In this composite image I wanted to represent the position and the changing phases of the Moon above the peaks of the Cridola Group, in Italy, during a lunar month, called synodic month.
    With an astronomical software I calculated for 27 days the position of the Moon every 1481 minutes (24 hours and 41 minutes), but for the capture of all the lunar phases I spent a whole year because the weather, in my country, is almost always unfavorable. The moons in the waning phase, on the left, were captured in January 2017 while the moons in the growing phase, on the right, between the month of July 2017 and December 2017. To photograph the moon I used a 400mm telephoto lens
