I have been moonlight gazing for over two years now, and I have realized  
that a lot depends on the screen of the computer you use. I had trouble  
understanding why some people couldn't see anything in the nighttime  
screenshots I posted to Facebook until we got a new laptop. Now I have to  
lighten the captures to be able to see anything, otherwise they are just  
dark with a few lighter spots. With the old laptop the view was much  
better, and so I assumed that everybody would see as much as I did which  
is simply not the case.
