The parametric error on the QCD-coupling can be a dominant source of uncertainty in several important observables. One way to extract the coupling is to compare high order perturbative computations with lattice evaluated moments of heavy quark two-point functions. The truncation of the perturbative series is a sizable systematic uncertainty that needs to be under control.

In this contribution we give an update on our study (PoS LATTICE2021 (2022) 354) on this issue. We measure pseudo-scalar two-point functions in volumes of $L=2$ fm with twisted-mass Wilson fermions in the quenched approximation. We use full twist, the non-perturbative clover term and lattice spacings down to $a=0.010$ fm to tame the large discretization effects.
Our results show that both the continuum extrapolations and the extrapolation of the $\Lambda$-parameter to the asymptotic perturbative region are very challenging.
