Beautiful detail, interesting color. Would be interested in your EXIF data, and did you adjust color in pp?

Very nicely done. Nice lens, I'm sure that helped a lot.

Well done indeed, George.
I've put an 'astrophotography' tag on the thread so that anyone going in there will see along with others and discussions on shooting the moon and the stars.

This is a good exposure and plenty of sharp detail, as has been said.
I hate to be a lone voice of criticism, but when viewed at 100%, I am concerned by the saturated reds and cyans/greens I see, especially on the terminator (shadow edge) on right. I'm not sure if the cause was noise (shouldn't be too bad at 100 iso) or if the noise, plus possibly some lateral chromatic abberation, has been made significantly worse by the saturation, contrast enhancements and sharpening applied.
Have you any ideas?
Was it shot RAW?
That said, it is waaaay better than anything I have shot (with 300mm).
So well done,

You're not alone in your thoughts Dave, as I too see the same issues. I've run into this

Nice detail in the shot, but I wonder how it would look with the sharpening and contrast
backed off just a bit.
