Hi, these are my first pictures of the moon I took. Keep in mind that I used a digital camera at 90x zoom, so the quality isn't at it's best. I used Photoshop to enhance the picture. Any advice on photoshopping/taking the picture would be highly appreciated.

The original picture.

Good for first time

Add a luminosity layer on top, desaturate it and adjust contrast 100 to the right and Light 100 to the left, then adjust opacity to get the contrast on the image, then flaten. try that.
