Thanks and 1/160 isn't really surprising given that, as I stated eariler, the moon IS a sunlit object even given its distance, esp. when full. Note how well one can see under a full moon at night when in an area free of artificial lighting. I've shot as fast as 1/250 at F5.6 (which works about the same given the bigger f-stop).
