I played around with moon shots quite a bit when I first got my A57 and the shot below is with the 55-200 lens. I also used a tripod and set the drive mode to 10 second timer so the camera wouldn't shake when the shutter button was pressed. This image was cropped to get rid of most of the black. I shot in manual mode with iso 100 and tweaked the shutter speed up and down till I got the right colour and moon detail.  I am pretty sure that I also used the clear image zoom but I can't remember.
