Thanks All for the comments.

The guiding with Maxim and multi star guiding worked well to keep the moon centred. Just had to keep changing the guider exposures as the shadow advanced and retracted. 0.001th sec to 2 sec in numerous steps.

Then had to register them manually in PS before cropping down to a size to work on.
