Almost full moon

First time experiment to shoot a photo of the moon using the 55-200 mm lens at the highest possible zoom.
to get it that clear, I tried to have the highest f number (smallest aperture) and lowest ISO (200) to get the final result like this.
alas the lens is not strong enough to get the details of the moon surface, so I had to crop the edges of the photo and rely on the resolution of this photo.

Camera Model: Nikon D40
Lens: Tamron AF 55-200mm F/4-5.6 Di II LD
Aperture: F45
Exposure: 1/13 Seconds
Sensitivity: 200 ISO
Focal length: 200.0 mm (35mm: 300.0 mm)
