According to the Wiki page, it moves just about its diameter per hour. That means if you kept the shutter open for a whole minute, it will move 60th of its diameter.

How large are you going to print this?
Likely not larger than 8x10". With a normal lens it will be more than a dot. Detail is definitely visible and it is larger than one might expect in the frame. The luminance of the moon will fall initially on zone X with the exposure I'm giving because the foreground elements are quite dark. Even with exposure on zone X there won't be much bloom and full detail will be recorded.
