You don't buy a DBK just to image the Moon. You buy a DBK because:

1) You like the convenience of 1-shot colour
2) You like the time saving in capture and processing
3) You like the cheaper cost, without having to buy a filter wheel and coloured filters (expect to add at least $500 onto the price of the camera alone).

They are the ONLY reasons you buy a DBK over a DMK. It isn't a voting exercise - it's completely up to you and your budget, time and experience.

For a beginner I'd recommend the DBK. Learn the art first. With the right equipment and techniques you can get reasonable results fairly quickly, but you'll be surprised how difficult it is to master and do very well.
