How was the AF? I had a hard time shooting the moon with a D7000+70-300mm because finding focus was complicated.

MF and Manual exposure are best way to do the moon. AF really isn't necessary as infinity is where you want to be. If you're on a telescope you will need LV for best manual focus. Manual exposure a must also as the moon face is reflected sunlight and exposure will be much shorter than the whole frame will reflect. Even a spot meter may give you incorrect readings, and matrix is out of the question.
