viewing a large moon usually results in loss of detail, because there is no shadowing, and the smaller it becomes the more detail appears along the terminator and the limb. have a squizz when it's half or cresant and you'll be amazed.

as for ep, I prefer to use a 6mm tmb planetary II for close up moon features and planets in my 10" dob. the eye relief is better then the 9mm plossol for me and the clarity seems clearer as well. a Barlow will help in your longer length ep while keeping the same eye relief.
