How do I take pics of the moon? I have never got it right. It's in focus but just a lovely white circle , no texture of wee moon type things to be seen on it

You need a tripod or sit the camera on something solid.

Then use Manual mode on your camera and set it to 125/sec at F8 ( ISO 100) give it a try and see how you get on.

Adjust the f stops accordingly if it still aint doing the business

In addition to what the scandanavian said, a handy little tip is to use the timer for taking the picture, this avoiding any camera shake caused by pressing the shutter release

The moon is very bright in the sky (2nd brightest object in the sky after the sun), for a full moon try around 1/500 at f8 & iso 100 as a starting point - should be able to shoot it hand held with no problems

This was taken the other night 1/400s f6.3 iso 100
