I tried various speeds and aperture settings, but this was the best I could get. One, I don't have a tracking motor, and the moon was noticeably moving in live mode, and two, the wind was actually moving the camera on the tripod, and I was using my iPhone to shoot the pic, and still got movement, but I like the surface features.

Nice images. So, tell us more. What settings and focal length did you end up using for these?

Thanks! I used various combinations to try and find the best combo. This one was f/40 1/500 ISO 25600 at 400mm. If I had the foresight, I would have fixed the ISO at a lower setting to see what that produces. My brother's Questar with a tracking drive would have been wonderful.
 
On the second one, I noticed a crater that looks like an eye just to the left of center, which was intriguing. I'm going to have to read up on lunar photography.

I usually shoot it at much lower aperture and ISO. My latest was f/6.3, 1/160 @ ISO 400 and I've gone as low as ISO 100. But I wasn't fighting any wind. I've never noticed any issue with the moon's motion at those shutter speeds.
