Without atmosphere and always in shadows... that would actually be a good place for a telescope.
"Always in shadows" ... well ... If the moon was lit from the earth, it would be so. But think of the position of the sun, moon and earth when you see the new moon over the horizon at sunset, and where the back side of the moon is pointing.

When we have a full moon. then it must be very shadowed on the dark side, though. No sun, no light reflected from the earth. No city lights. And of course no clouds. Must be very close to perfect. I doubt that we will see it realized in our lifetime, though.
