What you're seeing is blooming - in brief, the overexposed moon causes overcharging of the photodiodes and the result is a streak which runs left to right (from the sensor's point of view) across the image.

Which doesn't happen with CMOS sensors. That's an attribute of CCD "bucket brigade" shift register sensors.
