Any help would still help!
f8.0 causes major lens diffraction, softening the image significantly. Just use A mode, wide open f4.4, and use EV to adjust.
No one worries too much about the moon's colours...pick a Wb setting that looks right to you, or you can override by pressing the up button and manually adjusting the 4-way axis.
Or even better, shoot in B%W for maximum clarity!
PS Clint is just green with envy...
