Default My attempt at the moon

I borrowed my friend's EF 75-300mm with IS and I aimed it at the moon at full zoom and this is what I got.

It is slightly overexposed.
You could also crop it a bit, so there is less 'empty' space, and set the moon slightly off-center.

I get very frustrated with moon focus / exposure also.
