These are all hand held at 866mm, 1600 and 2000mm FoV at ISO 100, F6.3 1/320. PP in Lightroom with some sharpening and exposure adjustment mostly highlights. The colors were stunning blue sky and a sunset casting a bit of a glow.

 

The P900 has me really wanting the P1000 it fixes the few minor  things left out on the P900 and maybe slightly better AF.

Very impressive!

 

Those are better than any moon shot I have taken with my D850 so far!

 

The P1000, I am sure, will really be something.

Excellent images, Jim... well done!

 

I'm sure you'll be "over-the-moon" when you have the P1000 in your hands.

Handheld?  Jim, I am very impressed.  Even with the 1.4 TC, I've never got that close with my 200-500.  Well done, sir.  :)

Thanks all!

 

Art and Herman already saving my pennies for the P1000 my guess is by the time they are really available I should have enough saved up.

 

Have to give the P900 some props the fact I can shoot and not have to crop helps a lot and the lens on the P900 is very sharp.

Jim, I'm going to tip my hat to you even further, for nailing those shots right out of the camera.  In late 2015, Tony Northrup posted a You Tube video on how to photograph the moon.  His "technique" involved multiple images and specialist software.

 

 

However, you have once again demonstrated that there is something to be said for getting as much as possible right in the camera.  :)

I have seen this it seems to be over complicated to me but what do I know.

 

Thanks all for the kind words.

 

One thing I thing is over looked is the P900 is really sharp at 1400mm and less sharp at 2000mm still sharp bnut less than 1400mm which is normal at the extreme edge of the zoom range, now think on this the P1000 should be super sharp at 2000mm and sharp at 2500mm etc, add raw and you will have more room to manipulate at 2000mm than on the P900 this is going to be exciting to see the first reviews. To be honest this excites me more than the new mirrorless system.
