Not bad given the optics. Any reason for using align_image_stack over other possible stacking programs? Thanks in any case for mentioning it because I didn't know about it.

Was easier to figure out under linux than other options. My first foray in to stacking images

That's cool! I love the setup. Shooting the moon at 50% or less illumination will give you a lot more contrast 👍
