Unfortunately you have no detail in the moon. What you need is 2 shots. One exposed for the moon, & one for the sky. You'll probably find they're about 5 stops or more apart. Then merge the 2 in PS.
I'd overexpose the sky a stop or 2, to get a little more detail, & underexpose for the moon, starting at about 4 stops, & increasing until you get the detail you want.
I shot the moon for my "Crazy Train" (link) shot on a 200-500mm telezoom, at the long end. I found I was getting an exposure of about 1/125th, as opposed to seconds for the sky.
