If you use a tripod and focus manually with the LCD screen it is easier to get sharp photos of the moon, my cameras all have either focus peaking or at the very least a magnified view option that make critical focus very easy.

It was a nice evening in So Cal, here is a shot of the one and a half day old Moon at dusk, even shows a little Earth shine.
Best,
Steve

Couple of shots from tonight...

Not the best composure but was just outside the house getting something from the car and the clear skies coupled with the sunset just made me go and grab the camera

I believe the bright shiny thing (technical term :) ) below the moon is Venus...

Heya,

Walked outside this evening, the seeing was good, clear dark skies tonight in Florida in my area. Being able to just walk out and take the cover off and be ready to observe/image is just awesome. I was observing in less than 5 minutes walking outside to my permanently mounted setup. I was imaging in another 10 minutes after I took a look through my eyepiece and noticed the seeing was good. I was observing with a 2x barlow and 15mm plossl, and there wasn't a lot of distortion so I figured seeing was great. Walked inside, grabbed my laptop and camera and attached it and just recorded some quick video.

Orion Sirius (Mount) on my permanent concrete pier
Orion 80ED (600mm F7.5 Refractor)
GSO 2x Barlow
ZWO ASI178MC (camera, USB3)
Captured all with SharpCap (free) as video
Stacked with Autostakkert!2 (video, 3000 frames, best 40% stacked and aligned)
Panorama (moon only) done with MS ICE
Wavelets with Registax6
Finalized in CS5

Ignore the EXIF, I had to put whatever to be able to add to gallery, the forum doesn't allow for telescopes and other cameras yet. See above list for equipment used.
