Final resultvery simple masking.
This time we will have to create a similar effect. Just putting the moon in there is not going to look realistic so we will have to make some adjustments using Curves and Layer Styles to add contrast, color and glow to the moon.
On this video tutorial you will notice that in order to change the color of the moon I used Channels when I edited the Curves adjustment layer. That was perhaps the most advanced thing I did for this tutorial. But you can use other adjustments such as Hue/Saturation or Gradient Maps.
