Also, note that there looks to be some obvious atmospheric interference - clouds or just the heat haze if the moon was shot close to the horizon. Sometimes you gotta wait for the right night too.
use basic setting first...S-mode @ shutter speed 1/250, f5.6, ISO 100, tripod not needed... later on once you're familiar with your camera, then, you can do your own setting thru manual mode.
Can't recall the exact settings for the above picture, but its taken at 400mm f/8. Spot metering was used.

"Image Stabilization (and vibration reduction) lenses look for vibrations in your camera in order to reduce it – however if they don’t find any (like when you are using a Tripod) they actually can cause it – and as a result actually cause camera shake."
IS on if camera not on tripod, IS off if camera on tripod
test... not sure whether can see or not...
do not set delay to 2 sec
once it AF... take the shot almost immediately when there is no movement, else by 2 sec, the moon already move quite a lot!
