Was out on Sept 16th trying out some tips to get better Jupiter images and at the end of the night had the big and bright moon directly to the south of me.  

 

I swung the scope to point there and took a short video using my 8" F/5  newt and 533MC-Pro camera.  

 

Stacked the video using about 50% of the 1100 frames, I didn't do any post processing to the image after stacking.

 

I'm interested in critique

That's a fantastic first attempt! I'm sure you could sharpen your image a bit more. Pretty much everyone uses Registax 6 for this. The next thing I would work on would be trying to get the blown out (whitest) areas under control.

Keep it up! If that's your first lunar shot, I look forward to your future shots!
