Use just a camera with short telephoto lens (e.g. 50 or 85mm) and every 5 minutes a picture overlapping them. That might be very nice !

You won't see much detail with an 85mm lens.
The moon will look small.
If using a lens you're going to need upwards of 300mm and even a 2x Tele to get a decent FOV.
As Marc said an ED80 as a minimum with a DSLR (crop sensor, not Full Frame).

I might take the ed80 out and the C6 but remove the FR since they both donít weigh very much.
