Awful moon image after past success

Morning all,

I got up at 06:30 this morning and looked at the moon and immediately wanted to photograph it.

I used a 1Dx MKii with a Canon 100-400L Mkii.

I have taken many a successful picture of the moon before with good results, but its just not happening...its not sharp and looks awful.

Am I right in thinking that because of the time of day, it could be atmospherics interfering with getting a clear image or am I going wrong somewhere?

Thanks in advance!
