There are a few similar videos on youtube like this taken using the P900.
The Nikon P900 which just happens to be the flat Earthers camera of choice as well even though many get the amount of zoom the camera has wrong.
Nikon states it has an 83X zoom which is misleading and not correct it has a zoom range of 83x in 35mm film focal lengths it's range is 24-2000mm it even states that on the camera.
24mm is wide angle and approximately 0.5 x magnification 2000mm is slightly over 40x hence the 83x zoom claim.
It's great in daylight and for Moon images due to the zoom but the only reason it has such a high zoom range is the very small sensor used in it which is not very good for serious/very low light level work but it is a good camera for anyone with a casual interest or as a back up if you have a DSLR.
