    Not bad but a telephoto lens and a bit faster shutter speed would help.

    He was at 300mm.

    Your shutter speed was good. ISO 200 is probably gonna be fine, noise-wise.
    I think an aperture of f/8 vs. f/5.6 (what you used) would have provided you with a sharper picture. My 70-300 is sometimes pretty soft when wide open.

    Other things to do:

    mirror lockup, good tripod, self-timer or remote...

    EXIF:

    # Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/125 second ===> 0.008 second
    # Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 56/10 ===> ƒ/5.6
    # Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    # ISO Speed Ratings = 200
    # Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
    # Focal Length = 300/1 mm ===> 300 mm

    Lol oh ok, well maybe the moon is small on his side of town XD. And I thought the glowing around the moon was due mostly due to slow shutter speed.

    Ok I see it now. Just installed Ffox Drop the ISO to 200. I see you used 155. I'd zoom in more. As for the shutter speed at f5.6, I would start at 1/200 as you have 1/125

    Change those and see what you get
