I am so very pleased for the opportunity to join Cloudynights group. I have only been attempting photographing for about 6 months and the information from the groups is invaluable. I give thanks to all who have years worth of experience and are willing to share your collective knowledge. Here are a few taken on decent muggy,wet,humid south Texas nights. I have a Celestron SE8 on stock mount which i now know has limitations. The camera is a ZWO120MC. Registaxx and Lightroom. 
Hopefully with time and loads of patience I will become better.

Take a try at reprocessing with much less sharpening and I think you'll like the results.  Took me years to get myself to accept that images usually improve with less sharpening.  Using the appearance of halo's around your moon shadow as an indication of too much sharpening is a good rule of thumb.  Limb rind can also be a useful indicator.
