Hello, here I am back to the fullmoon subject. Theory says to get the moon surface you need a high speed and a low ISO. Well if I have that with manual setting, it's impossible to catch even lightly the objects (ie buildings, tree branches etc) of the foreground. A detailed moon is possible only alone, for what I understand. What am I doing wrong?

Nothing, the moon is very bright compared to most night scenes, To stand any chance of capturing foreground detail you need to add quite a bit of light, or merge multiple shots at different exposures.
