is it possible to capture the entire moon using an LPI with a LX200 GPS 8" with 6.3 focal reducer?

Not with one image.

To get the whole moon you will have to make a mosaic of several images.

Further to other discussions, the best (easiest!) way to do it is to use eyepiece projection and an ordinary domestic digital camera. I've even done shots using a 3.2 megapixel camera and binoculars. LPIs and webcams are better for close-ups but I'm not convinced that I (or anyone else) has fully explored what can be done.
