At 480mm, the moon would be perhaps 10% of the vertical image.

Thought this died with no replies, guess I just didn't check back frequently enough!

Here's the original at 900x600.

As mentioned, the sad fact for most of us is that we just don't have enough glass to get a good shot which is unfortunately the camp you are in. The moon is something that will attract all of us to shoot but we have to be aware of our limitations.

Although the full moon looks cool, you will generally find more detail when less is illuminated as you get better shadows. Same goes for portraits, you wouldn't want the light straight in the face of the subject, but rather passing across the features at an angle.
