I might get sharper images on not so windy night/morning

There really isn’t much detail in the photo. It looks like a typical Moon photo taken with a lackluster bridge camera. It looks sort of okay when you view a postage stamp size image, but if you zoom it out to monitor size it lacks detail and looks fuzzy. Mirror lenses are cheap crap, and the results tend to be lacking.
