I took 20 shots and this was the best of the bunch. The tamron lens I have has a really short focus throw getting manually focused was a bit difficult and i don't think i had it quite right. PP I had to reduce the brightness a bit and contrast up a lot. I need to get better at changing the settings while the camera is pointing up at a an angle.
I was using a tripod and with it sitting at the angle i could not find the controls by feel to mess with different aperture and shutter speeds.
I chose iso 200 to try to combat the noise / grain.
Question is there a motorized focus mode where it's not AF but where I can step through the focus +/- in steps ?

Don't think there is such a control; and although I'm still a beginner at this I found that using live view to focus works better than looking through the viewfinder. Using live view enables you to magnify the image 5x or 10x which really helps to focus.
I did this one last night (it was take moon shots or listen to Madonna):
