Just after twilight on a clear frosty night, between new moon and first quarter, used tripod and self timer to reduce shake but moon is still not sharp, i'm reasonably ok with everything else apart from the moon

Nothing is sharp, you have movement somewhere, tripod or not. This type of image is best shot as two, foreground for one exposure and focus, moon for the other. Then combine in software. Difficult to get a few hundred thousand miles in depth of field.

If you go that route, also makes a better image if you cheat and increase the size of the moon a bit.

With a long exposure you could expect a little movement in the sky...which includes the Moon.
I think you could have afforded a slightly shorter shutter speed as part of the Moon is very over exposed.

Yep,one way of doing it,but you would still need to steady your camera better methinks,even just a little gust of wind will shift it unless you have a tripod weighted down.
Reckon you could afford a crop from the bottom as all the black area is not really adding anything to the image...the silhouettes are the trees,which are pretty against the sky.
A crop from the top would also put the Moon in a better position in the frame...I'll try a mod for you.
