When I using my longest lens to shoot the moon (1000 mm) I ALWAYS use Mirror lock up, both the 2 second and the manually triggered (click once to bring the mirror up, and again to fire the shutter). If I don't the moon will be blurred thanks to my crappy tripod.

I use liveview for MF lenses at times (on a tripod obviously) And I'll zoom to 8x or 10x to make sure I've got the focus right and then shoot, which is obviously also mirror up.
