For hand-held that's not half bad.

You've probably read this thread already, but I thought I'd give you a link anyway. It's got some tips for moonshots.

Not bad shots at all, Julie! You did take these pictures of the full moon during the daylight hours, explaining the lightness of the sky around the moon, right? What exposure info could you give us?

Also, you'll get a higher relief image with more crater detail if you take moon pictures during one of its non-full phases. During full moon phase all the features are pretty much flat because of the head on lighting by the sun.

Here's a hand-held shot through a 10" dobsonian. These are especially hard because the moon is moving across the eyepiece very quickly at this magnification and you have to keep manually moving the scope.
This photo gives a good idea of how mangled the surface is.
Sorry about the vignetting. The terminator is running through the craters in the upper left of the photo...
