First of all, thanks for your comments on yesterday's entry – there have been plenty of times when I've seriously doubted that I'd make it to 1000 images, so it was good to hear that the majority of them have been appreciated :-)

So, no we've got that milestone out the way, here's entry number 1001, a composite of two exposures – one for the sky, one for the moon (i.e. two shots of the same scene at different exposures, rather than the moon from one and the sky from another).

Having taken this one I really wish I had a very long lens, or a 2x converter, or even a telescope, as I'd really like to try a much closer shot than this one. This one's ok, and does show quite a bit of detail, but it would be nice to be able to capture a full-frame image.

Oh, and a couple of people (in yesterday's comments) asked about how we pronounce chromasia:

crow-maze-ea

... with the emphasis on the "m": chroMasia. "Crow", as in the bird, "maze", as in the crop, and "ea" prounced as a long "e" (i.e. the letter name) and a short "a" (the letter sound, as in "bat"). Out of interest, let me know if you've been pronouncing it differently.
