Is pictures of the moon with FZ200 possible?

I have been thinking of getting a FZ200 and using it as a telescope and a means to take pictures of the moon. My neighbour has an 8" scope but he uses a cheap 4MB video camera to take screen grabs on his PC. After photo stacking the results are amazing. But I am wondering if I can do better with a camera with a better sensor than he is using. One of my question is whether the FZ200 zoom can give me a big enough image so that I don't need to do any cropping. The next question is whether I would need to use a teleconveeter as well. I have quite a few of those. Any tips are most welcome.
