Photographing through glass

Remember those early morning photos of the moon? They will need quite a bit of cleaning up. The reason? There are two possibilities:
  1. Double planed windows. Don't photograph through double planed windows at night. A light on the outside can cause havoc. The inner pane reflects light to the outer pane, which then reflects it back into the camera.
  2. The camera itself. I had a non-multicoated UV protector on my lens. That might have reflected light from the lens itself back to the window, which reflected it back.
I'll ping my Adobe connection again and see how close I might be to getting photoshop. Lightroom doesn't have as many tools for doing cleanup etc, which is a shame.
