My first attempt at the moon. I know its kind of soft, but any pointers would be great.
Thanks

Not bad for 1st attempt, there's a bit of a halo around the moon but that could be due to moisture in the air (or dirt on the lens, or maybe a cheap UV filter).

I'd suggest using a lower ISO (less noise) and a smaller aperture (should help with the sharpness), eg. ISO 100, f/8, 1/15 sec ,or ISO 100, f/11, 1/8 sec, you can go up to about 1/2 sec for exposure time before the moon will motion blur. If you have mirror lock up that will help reduce the effect of any vibrations.
