Good shot. In terms of pointers, you could try bringing out the detail a little more in post processing by a little sharpening (don't overdo it) and a touch more contrast. You may also find that the image becomes a little more interesting when not quite a full moon. Your camera settings look reasonable to me, although I use 1/250 with a lower ISO - it'll vary with different cameras.
I'm never quite happy with my own moon shots, which is great as it means we keep trying to improve.

Much better. Did you shoot with a tripod or hand-held?

Lovely shot. I’ve been thinking of the moon a lot now the Chinese have also landed there. It is amazing to think after all these years we have returned. I wonder what is next for space exploration and the moon in particular.
