The moon is at roughly at the same distance from the sun as earth. It is rocky as a desert would be here:

So on a sunny day on earth, how would you take a picture of a desert landscape?

You took 10 seconds and f/3.5, why?

Think a bit and try the f/11 rule: use f/11 as aperture and  the reciprocal of your ASA number for exposure speed: ASA 200 => 1/200 sec; ASA 100 => 1/100 speed. Some call it the f/16 rule; you experiment! (here ASA = ISO)

And use the longest lens you can get a hand on; a tripod would help, too. The moon is so small.
