Putting a telescope on Moon is not a good idea. It is barely any better than any other surface telescope. It also carries significant weight & overhead if has to be really usable. Keeping telescopes in space gives them better view & power. A telescope that is left to orbit around moon is far better than a telescope that is landed on moon. That can be used both to zoom Moon's surfaces and observe asteroids or other space objects around earth.
