Shootin' the moon

I happened to glance out my kitchen window last night after I fed Pumpkin and noticed a spectacular full moon. I grabbed my camera, telephoto lens (75-300mm), and tripod and headed out into my driveway. My goal was to get pictures of the moon through the tree in my front yard. Here are the two best shots:

Exposure 1/15 sec at f 5.6, ISO 200, Focal Length 300mm

Exposure 3.2 sec at f/36, ISO 200, Focal Length 140mm

I was hoping to get the moon and tree a bit more in focus at the same time, but I wasn't having much luck making adjustments to my camera in the dark. I like the first one the best. What do you think?
