Thank you, and you're welcome.
I did use a tripod and remote release, even though the shutter speed was 1/500 sec, oh, and the big 150-600 lens, so it was with assistance.

As I was passing this forum.
View from Wokingham, just as it popped over tree line. Shots were hand held (well propped on a wobbly flat screen monitor) as I was in the middle of cooking and didn't have time to find and set up tripod. Wobbly bits to moon are caused by heat haze i.e. hot air coming of radiator.
Bits of cloud added a touch of interest. Though I was waiting for a boy on a bicycle to fly across the moon.
In retrospect I should have made the effort and set up my tripod especially as I can trigger my camera from my laptop. However, burnt dinner would not have been appreciated by other half or sprog.
This morning's moon at 07:20... missed the "big" one coz was away
And this morning's
Lovely photos Peak Rambler, I need a bigger telephoto!
But, I was lucky enough enough to be in the alps for the Wolf moon, luckily didn't see any Wolves waiting in the cold for the moon to appear!

In reply to RStonehawk:
Lovely photo, and nice with the landscape illuminated by the moon.
I don't know what lens, or camera you used, but its a brilliant photo in my eyes.
