    Yes, you can look at moon with binoculars which will not hurt your eyes. The lenses in the binoculars are transparent which will protect your eyes because of the special coating. In order to protect your eyes, you should have the good rest. If your eyes feel not comfortable, you could use the eye drops to moisture the eyes and get the eyes to be comfortable.

    Don't worry. It doesn't matter to look at the moon with binoculars because the light of the moon isn't strong and the binoculars is not like magnifying glasses which do harm to your eyes. However, don't use binoculars to look at the sun, or it will hurt your eyes because the light of the sun is too strong for human to bear.

    You can observe the moon with your binoculars occasionally. I used a 7x50 binocculars to watch the moon wearing my goggles and the moon seems really bright. You need a camera tripod to solid the binoculars avoiding the tiny adjustment caused by our heartbeat. However, as for the full moon, I think you can directely see it with naked eye instead of your arstronomy facilities. Apart from that, keep it in mind that our eyes are delicate. When the intensive lights flood into our sensitive part of our eyes, because our eyes are dilated to expose this part, our eyes have a lot of work to transform the optical information into the chemical information. They are prone to become exhausted. What is worse, you may not feel pain or other symptoms as dizziness at moment, but your retina have been hurt. Avoid the full moon, or don't do it.
