You need help with blown highlights?

Why are you asking for camera settings because you've blown out highlights in past attempts?

Do you not make use of the histogram? It's not like the moon makes a split second appearance and then goes away for another month.

Use a (good) tripod. Use a cable release. You need a long lens. Something equal to or greater than 400mm. Shoot a half moon or something less than full. Use daylight WB. You can almost use the Sunny 16 rule when shooting the moon (but like I said earlier, you have a histogram. Use that.).
