Colin, I'm glad you could at least capture some images of the full moon.  I tentatively downloaded your post, fumbled it in Camera Raw File to realize the colorful lights of the town below was nicely captured.

I'm no expert of PP either (I don't even know how to create masks!), but, for such a combination of the bright moon and very dark cityscape, I typically expose not to blow out the detail of the moon and lower the contrast drastically in PP to start processing.  When I was using D750, I always chose the Picture Control to "flat".

Thanks Akira and Øivind
I'm reassured by similar questions dropping up on the Cloudynights group.

I'll have a play with contrast again.
