G'day SSG

Yes a good one - and may I offer some cc

- Metering of the bright moon inside a black sky does cause issues to the poor ol' meter ... so I usually use -1EV to balance this metering error
- I also go to Shutter mode and set my speed to around 1/250 to 1/500 - depends upon how much moon is visible
- ISO is on 400
- lens zoom is maximum
- tripod is not essential [with shutter speed of 1/250+] but it helps

Hope this helps a bit
Regards, Phil
