This was done with a Nikon P900 83X I think If there are aliens on the moon you could find them with this camera.
83x zoom btw.



I can tell I'm getting older because technology is starting to appear to be like magic to me now.

I have one of those cameras, and yes the zoom is phenomenal. I have a bunch of eclipse pictures I took with it. I'll see if I can find them...

That was pretty amazing, now imagine what kinda zoom these camera will have in another 10-20 years.

Is that excluding whatever lenses were being used?

Must admit I thought it would be more expensive....give it a year half the price

That was very COOL.
Does anybody see the fact that the bottom left of the moon has way more craters(strikes from objects) than most of the observable surface??, could be telling eh?

I wouldn't mind seeing what it could show when pointing at Saturn or Jupiter.

The Coolpix series are point & shoots. They don't have separate lenses like an SLR. One of the reasons they are so cheap. This one is a tad bigger than most Coolpix models, kind of mid-range. I have an older 5700 that looks exactly like this one. Most of the "zoom" is real zoom, but the last few ticks are digital. You can see that in the vid where it "clicks" its last few moves. I'm pretty sure that had to have been on a tripod or the photographer could not have kept the Moon centered. Here it is at Amazon

You'd be disappointed. Even with a Celestron C5 telescope or equivalent, Jupiter is a very tiny dot, though you can see 5 of its larger moons.

awesome video but honestly you don't think "they have better?" lol

Of course they have better but as far as bridge cameras go- 83* is pretty impressive!

A good cheap alternative might be the Sony DSC 400's which have 63* zoom and you can pick them up for £100 used.
If you dont want to store what you are seeing/dont need an LCD screen for eye relief- a pair of Celestron Sky Master binoc.s on a tripod at 80* zoom will give equal/better results.

Tripod would be required for all scenarios but similar results are do-able for circa $200.

Also worth mentioning (as it is ATS) that these types of gadgets are garbage for UFO spotting...better off with an array of decent low light CCTV cams.
