Supermoon over Frankfurt

Supermoon over Frankfurt last night (2015-08-31). This is a huge panorama stitched from five 36PM photos. It was take from a spot on the north of Frankfurt. I was looking for a nice place from where I could take a shot of a moonrise along with the Frankfurt skyline.
This also gives you a different view of Frankfurt skyline, comparing to the most obvious ones that you can see from the city itself :-)
Even though the moon was still low and had lots of texture, I had to underexpose it by a few stops to get it right. Of course this means that the city was completly dark. To overcome this problem, I took 5 shots to make the panorama with properly exposed city and then another shot with the properly exposed moon.
This is the cropped version of the pano.

Photo details: Nikon D800; 28-300mm f3.5-5.6; 30 sec at f/8; ISO 100.
