Hand held?
You don't fancy a job as a tripod, do you? Grin
That is very impressive. Must be a good lens.
Interesting settings

Loads of interesting detail and features picked up with your new Sigma, David, and exp. so since hand held: did you rest camera against a solid structure........I have used trees and lamp posts but never for the moon.

It is a heavy lens i have the same one but i mainly use it on a tripod and it gives great results your ISO was quite high but you still got a decent shot of the moon

Yours is the second moon I've opened in a row.
One from India and now yours - how very different it looks
in the two images. Loads of detail captured and well done for hand held.
Hope you enjoy the new lens.
