Charon's Garden Wilderness in the Wichita Mountains, Comanche Co., OK.

 

Stack of 30 sec. exposures at f/3.5, ISO 400. Shot from 11:00-11:40pm CDT.

 

This was with the moon about 70% full and still fairly high in the sky. I think it's a good compromise between my previous two attempts, which were with a full moon at the zenith (very bright foreground, but fewer stars visible) and a new moon (no foreground, but lots of stars).
