I use a HP945 and took this full moon last month.

My tip for taking shots of the moon is to try auto exposure, set metering to SPOT, ISO as low as it will go, if the camera has an infinity focus setting use that, set it up on a tripod aim at the centre of the moon and then use the self timer to make sure you get no camera shake (even though the shutter speed may be fairly fast). Try adjusting the EV compensation to somewhere around -1.0EV (minus 1), this is important to make sure you pick up the detail on the surface and make sure the surrounding sky is deep black. It is also possible to experiment with lower values (i.e 2.0EV). If the auto exposure doesn't work too well, as mentioned earlier, use Aperture priority and set as small as aperture as possible, f12.1 on my camera.

Try it and see.

Ok I tried a few things that were suggested here and this is the last photo I took of the moon. I croped the photo. I only have a 10x zoom on the s5000.
