Any reason for picking f/32? That's reducing the light and causing softening from diffraction. Try in the range f/8-f/11, which will allow you to drop the ISO and help retain a bit more information there too.

I suggest f/11 and 1/80 - 1/125 with ISO 100 when its full Moon. If you still feel that its over exposing the image then use the EV to reduce the brightness and check it out..
