Looks good, I am sure you will be happy with the lens. Try shooting the moon when it is less than full and you will be surprised at how much more detail you get.

I really had wished for a half moon as you say since the light strikes it from the side and you can see lots more detail in the shadows of the crators. Everything looks a little flat at the moment! , but only 7 days to wait fo that :G

Working with the moon and teleconverters can be fun and frustrating. I took 20 shots the other night of the 'Blue Moon" with my new FZ8 and an Olympus C-210 teleconverter that typically takes 'soft' shots. To compensate for the softness, I set the camera to High on sharpness.

Then when I was done I realized that I had left OIS on 2, even though I used a tripod and should have shut if off altogether..

Tony,

Nice shot but I think you Tcon is faulty. Your moon is upside down......

See mine works fine

Nice job with your new TCON Tony. After carefully analyzing and comparingyour moon shot with Rafael's, I tend to agree with him that your TCON is defective. If you are going to sell your"defective"TCON at a considerable discount, I'm willing to take it off your hands! :-):-)LOL.
