You'll probably find that temperatures on the Moonstone Trek, being higher altitude than the Inca Trail, could quite easily reach freezing at night. I would certainly prepare yourself for cold nights by taking lots of layers - a down jacket or heavy fleece as well as good gloves and a warm hat will almost certainly be necessary for nights in camp. During the day, expect temperatures in the mid to high teens, but when sunny it can feel significantly hotter and you'll probably want to take convertible trousers or shorts. Since the trek stays above 3000m for most of the time, and doesn't drop into cloud forest, you shouldn't experience the same levels of humidity as the second half of the classic Inca Trail. As Jonathan has said, take a poncho as well as decent waterproofs - Andean rain can be sudden and heavy!
