Moon shots are one of the few times I shoot off the LCD display and always use a tripod.
Remember the moon is very bright and actually moving very fast.
I will zoom in to 10X on the LCD display while focusing, that way I can see that I have nailed the focus. Using the 10 sec selftimer will allow all of the camera vibrations to settle down before the shutter is actuated. (I use a wireless remote now, but had success using the 10sec timer). By using the LCD display you are locking up the mirror and avoiding mirror slap which will also cause the camera to shake and the picture to be blurry.
