Caution: I used MechJeb!
Attention: at the end of the settings of the steps there is complete confusion. after disconnecting the lunar fairing, all operations must be done manually.

This is a rocket that will take you to the moon and successfully return you home! It is made in the style of Apollo, so it is not interesting in construction.
So take off!

The first stage disconnected, the second turned on. Soon there will be a circularization of the orbit. The height of the orbit in the apocenter of Kerbin and in its pericenter is approximately equal to 150,000 meters. Do not forget to manually separate the rescue tower after circularization!

After creating an orbit that will take us to Moon the second stage, we need to separate the command module with its fuel tank. Then go to the tracking center and remove the pyro ring. Then deploy using the Reactive Control System and dock with the lunar module. If the orbit of the Moon’s orbit has suffered due to the use of monofuel, you can fix it using the command module engine (since there still remains a lot of fuel at the end of the trip). Also do not forget to release the solar panels on key 1.

So, we are at an altitude of 50,000 meters relative to the Moon. We need to slow down and create a good round orbit. We brake the engine of the command module (just do not confuse the position of the ship. Change the control between the lunar module and the command module). Ok, now we are transferring Jeb Kerman and Gemza Kerman to the Lunar Module through the docking port. We create a primary undocking unit. And … undocking!

We undocked. Now we turn on 4 engines on the sides and release the landing paws. The most exciting moment … And … And … Soft landing!

Lower the stairs. The first Kerbonaut in the airless space of the Moon! Wow! Also the first Kerbonaut ON the surface of the Moon! We set the flag as a keepsake, take pictures and wait for the right moment to take off.

We took off! After disconnecting the lateral engines and creating an orbit, you adjust it to approach the target (command module). Oh yes, I forgot to say that I took the lunar module from the developers of the game, forgive me for that. I was too tired to make a rocket and scored to create my own lunar module. In any case, we will soon come closer to the goal.

This time everything went wrong. Before this flight, I tested a rocket, and I managed to dock the modules together (of course, using MehJeb). But this time it (MehJeb) broke down and could not dock normally. I had to manually approach the Kerbonauts on the jetpack to the door of the command module. It’s sad.

After all Kerbonauts fastened their seat belts, we are ready to fly home. We fly off a little further from the lunar module, create a maneuver into orbit around Kerbin and begin to leave the sphere of influence of the Moon. Everything went wrong again. I could not make a normal maneuver, because of which I had to spend more fuel. Again, when I tested the rocket, I immediately went from the Moon’s orbit into the orbit of Kerbin with a pericenter of 30,000 meters. But everything turned against me again … After the orbit was created (it should be slightly above 30 kilometers) we disconnect the command module along with the heat shield. I was too lazy to configure the ablator to the desired number of units. You can reduce the ablator to about 200-300 units. I also note that in my complexity settings there is no checkmark on the item An antenna is required for communication and control. You can add if you want, there is still a lot of fuel left.

So the end of our journey has come. In reality, it takes (for me) 1-1.5 hours. In conclusion, I can notice that at least somewhere luck was associated with me: I landed near the Space Center (you can see it in the screenshots if you look closely)
