How much does the moon affect when capturing the night sky ?

Here is a comparison of what the camera sees when the moon is out and when the moon has set. The night / morning i captured this image, It was Waxing Gibbous moon with 95% Illumination.

Moonset was in an hour and that is when i started doing a timelapse to capture that smooth transition from bright to dark sky.

The images i used in the comparison are straight out of camera (SOOC) without any editing. The botton one is the first frame and the top one is the last frame of the timelapse.

Exif: 15sec, ISO 1600, f2.8 at 24mm on Canon 6D

I am a web and software developer by day and an astrophotographer at night. Because of the nature of my day job, the only times I get to drive out to beautiful locations in on weekends. So, always try to make the best of a weekend.
