The meter on the AE-1 could work with the 210mm if you keep the Moon centered with the center weighted average metering pattern.
You need a long lens for good shots however as the moon is just half a degree across. A 2000mm lens (a telescope) with a driven equatorial mount is best. If set to Moon rate it will keep the Moon centered. If I'm up (it is very late/early here) I may get my 1800mm f/8 telescope out on its mount for a try though the weather looks pretty iffy.
Edit: I should say for good tight shots you need a telescope. You can get good shots including the horizon, foreground objects, moon tracks with multiple or single long exposures using shorter lenses.
