I need to create a high quality short animation with a semi-futuristic moon buggy going towards a moonbase in 3ds Max.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I would go about modeling a realistic surface of the moon?

This is as close as the camera can get before the real moon texture from Nasa becomes blurry.

So I have to create my own textures to displace the terrain with. Here is what i have so far...
