For the most part.. since the moon is quite bright, you would have to set it for infinate focus and spot metering as tclune has already mentioned. Maximum zoom with a tripod, and depending on the quality of the tripod.. use self timer. The pic I posted has a little sharpening done as post processing, but not too much.

Just takes some practice, and for the detail, it is best when it is not a full moon, as no shadows are present on the moon itself.

practice makes perfect, for sure.
my first tryouts with my fz30 tought me that it's useless trying moon shots without a tripod no matter the power of the image stabilization.

Some useful advice here: http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/moon/index.html

Most of us make the mistake of thinking we need a long exposure - its surprising how much moonlight there is!
