Well, you don't want another bucket, as the headspace is way way too wide, so if you don't have a carboy you'll have to bottle it when it's done.
I'd prefer to wait until it clears a bit (far less crap in the bottles) but you can bottle it when it's finished if you feel you have to and don't mind the sludge in the bottom of the bottle.
My preference would be to put it in an appropriately sized carboy for a month or two, at least, before bottling.
