Shoot the Moon – Nikon P1000 Moon Photos

​I was out before sunrise this morning and saw the bright moon overhead. I just had to go back inside to grab my new Nikon P1000 camera and try taking a few pictures. It is amazing what you can see with a 3000mm lens. I couldn't even zoom in all the way and still get the whole moon in the frame!

Moon at 2500mm zoom

At 2500mm zoom I could fit the whole moon in the frame

Moon at 3000mm

​At 3000mm the moon doesn't fit within the frame of the photo!

Moon at 6000mm Digital Zoom

​​6000mm digital zoom gets even closer but image quality suffers

I want to try getting pictures of the planets on another clear night. I am going to have fun with this camera!
