I really like the third shot, but the noise & JPEG compression is killing it! I'd run that photo trough some denoise software.

True, however, I'd rather make the right shot from the camera. In this case the moon was obscured all night but for a few minutes, leaving me to run out of the house without at least a mono-pod, and rush my settings. Honestly I don't use raw, though I should.

Thanks for the comment
