Two moons

Here are two shots of the moon this evening/night (here in Tanzania), both taken with the DA55-300mm, hand held (cropped of course)

My question: Do you think these are ok or should I be getting better from this lens?

Haven't got the lens but No.2 looks good enough to me, particularly as it is both cropped and hand held/

I think No 2 is excellent, especially handheld! Great job, there's such clarity.

I like No1 also, as its blue tone is different to the norm. I'd use Noise Reduction on the blank sky to smooth it.
