Thanks neimad19;
In reality I was a bit disappointed seeing clouds as I was aiming for Milky way and Jupiter, but then Moon rise really changed my idea.

Though Moon was only a tiny waxing crescent (external link)last night, that was bright enough to show the glory to mountain.

The fundamental concept to remember is that Moon light, is nothing by a weaker but exact "Sun light" bounced off the moon on the way to shine earth. Unlike poetical expression or general believe, it is not a Blue light.
So it gets easy to know best WB is the day light or AWB.
I am using AWB and seems it works fine.
There has been situations where nearby tungsten had strong influence and surely a switch was working too. But if Moon light alone is in display, it is a perfect light as is.
Here is a good LINK. (external link)
