Composite?. Moon can't appear that big.... Surely. 

Sure it can. With a long enough focal length, that's not a problem.

Very stable air - although the air between the moon and the mountain seems less stable. Amazing all the same.

Incredible. I wonder what length of lens was being used.

The one in the picture I posted as a reply. It's a Tak "lens".:grin:

65 mm aperture?

Daniel Lopez has done several of this kind of images/video, as can be seen on his website
