Moon Obscured by Clouds and Dust

The full moon was very low in the sky, just after dark, peeking through clouds and dust on the horizon.  I had to hand-hold the shot from the car, so I pumped up the ISO and guessed the exposure.  The result is pretty accurate to to what I saw in the viewfinder.

Capture: Nikon D700, ISO 1600, Celestron 1,000mm telescope, f/11 @ 1/1500s.
Processing: Lightroom 2, ACR 4.6 profile, cropped 1:1, landscape sharpening preset.
