I think what so frustrating to me is, when I 'm looking through the camera I can see the detail. The focus is sharp and crisp. And although very small I can see the detail of the craters. I guess I just learned that the camera does not always see what the eyes do. Ok folks thanks for all the ideas and help. If I figure something out I'll definitely post it.
Please stay safe.
Our eyes tend to compensate for poor "seeing conditions" or turbulence in the atmosphere. When a camera takes a shot it captures either the distorted or perfect view at that second. If you were to look at Jupiter at 200x you would think it was under a river of water if the atmosphere is not steady. The best skies will have stars that aren't twinkling...steady as a rock. The moon will display the same views because it is still dependent on looking through our atmosphere. That is why the accepted method for moon and planetary imagery is video running through a alignment/stacking program to reduce the number of poor quality exposures.
It is very rare to get a single perfectly focused shot of the moon. Yes it does matter about the depth of field. Try looking through a telescope, focused at the edge craters and you will find the center craters will not be as sharp or visa versa. If you focus on the moon and zoom in tightly on the stars they will not be truly in focus.
