D&G 5" f/15 achro. Afocal eyepiece projection. Nikon 995 Coolpix with 32 mm plossl. Don't have a DSLR, but the Coolpix is OK for the moon. Bright, contrasty and easy to focus.

Very nice, Dom. There is just a bit of chromatic aberration on the limb of the moon; if you have Photoshop you can correct that using the "Distort-->Lens Correction" filter. You can also put a touch more sharpening on this. I fiddled with it a bit in PS and tweaking the chromatic aberration and sharpening tightened the image up nicely.
