    Well yes 200mms is a bit short. But really I have seen far worse, fact is some of mine were at first. You are better off manually focusing if you didnt already. The moon is not a great AF target.

    I was going to ask if you used a tripod... That's really the main thing I see is a little bit of blur...

    I took a photo of the moon with the same lens, no crop though. This was the result.

    Like the others said it looks a little blurry, what does it look like un-cropped.
    And another question.. What shutter-speed did you use?

    ok Aleksey. maybe you'll see a 300 or 350mm manual focus turn up cheap somewhere. i got a 300mm Kiron in a charityshop recenty for about $15. sharp lens with great color rendition.
