Sorry but there is no viewing around the full moon. It is just too bright and washes out the cool astronomical objects (star clusters, nebula, galaxies, planets, etc.) we like to see. Also, the full moon is not even the best time to view the moon. Again it is too bright even with filters and more importantly it is not well lit for viewing. By that, we mean when the moon is full it is being illuminated by the Sun directly straight-on. This does not allow the observer to see details such as crater walls or mountain heights that you can see when the moon is illuminated from the side. This occurs at the quarter moon phase which is a much better time to view the moon.
