so explain why Romy can shoot at F16?


Because shooting the moon is similar to shooting in bright light and normal astrophpotography is very different. On the shot you linked to he has taken it at f16, iso100 and 1/25s and says that he exposes to the right. The sunny 16 rule tells us that on a bright sunny day we should be at 1/100s at iso100.

So his exposure for the moon is within 2 stops of the best light (and better than most light here in the UK).
