I'm super nervous to shoot BIF. I feel like all my shots are going to come out blurry because I'm having a hard time imagining having enough time to track and shoot while remaining steady. Even the IS takes a second to kick in. You shoot tripod/mono for BIF?

Take it slowly..
IS has little value for BIF because your shutter speeds are in 4 digits almost always.
Unless a gimble head, tripod will not be very useful for BIF.
Tamron is "light" and can easily handhold for BIF (with practice)

lol, it's a bit overcooked, but I think it'll print ok. I may do a smaller 8x8 print or something. I kinda like it.

I like it as well!

I just don't think the moon is supposed to look metallic.

no, it's just my interpretation exaggerating the post processing..... it's nothing new really, just like over characterizing a sunset or turning a photo to black and white ;)

I certainly didnt paint in any colors, just pushed saturation, levels, and curves.
