as mentioned before, you want to take a short exposure for the moon since its relatively bright and very high contrast. with my 750mm catadioptric lens, i go as short as 1/1000 bursts, and thats hand-held because at that speed, a steady hand doesnt matter.

its not like taking pictures of stars where light is faint.

except planets (like jupiter) are bright like the moon, but much harder to take a picture of because you need to magnify it much much more.

also at 10 seconds, youd see it move and trail quite a bit.

lastly keep ISO at 100 for the moon.
