I agree with John on the need for more data:
Also the attached below suggests we might need to know more about any
selected on the moon.
How deep the dust 
How rocky
How illuminated and when.
The differences between the poles and non poles areas.
See video of moon:
+ The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has released the 
  final still images taken by the onboard High Definition Television 
  (HDTV) from Kaguya, just before it completed its mission by impact-
  ing the moon on June 11, 2009. An entire series of images were 
  taken with an interval of about one minute by the HDTV (Teltephoto) 
  while Kaguya maneuvered its way to impact in Gill Crater. See:
