Moon from my bedroom

Someone pointed out in a private post that there's a very large full moon over London tonight. So I took a few pictures.

I think this may be the clearest moon picture I've ever taken, using my 28-300mm zoom rather than the mirror lens (which really isn't sharp enough). I think the shutter time was 1/1000 second, I've boosted brightness and contrast slightly. The top of the moon isn't as sharp as I'd like, probably a little shake even at this speed.

If I wasn't living in London I'd probably think about buying a telescope for this sort of thing - as it is, there's too much light pollution for it to be useful.
