Canon 7D with Canon 18-200mm zoom on tripod. Composite of 2 photos, first one of 10 second exposure at f/3.5 and ISO 2500 (for greater detail of stars), second of 1 second exposure at f/3.5 and ISO 2500 (for image of moon only). The 1 second exposure was then cut and merged onto the 10 second exposure.
