EV 0.0
max. focal length 18X
WB auto

It looks a bit greenish...

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!

Keep trying!
