Nope, not cropped at all. I do need to tweak the focus, and this is without a moon filter, so I'm sure I'm blowing out all the highlights. I need to do some post-processing on this & a few other pics I took that night.

Have a few more shots taken with a couple other lenses, will try to get them posted within a day or two.

Thanks for noticing my pic.
