this is my first time trying to shoot the moon. High winds and a less than ideal tripod lead to some camera shake.

Perhaps next time you will have better conditions. Your settings seems all right, just that slight movement. I've tried the moon a few times with a Zivnon 500mm mirror lens and a Kenko 2x, but never get something sharp enough to post. From what I've seen so far it is far more difficult than it seems. Just the slightest movement and even atmospheric conditions apparently have an effect on the outcome. We should just keep on trying though
