It was a cool, clear night when we had 2017’s December super moon, so photos and video ensued. The longest lens I’ve got is a fixed Nikon Coolpix P610. It’s a whole camera that costs a fraction of the equivalent SLR zoom. Since it’s build to use that lens, even though it doesn’t let a lot of light in, it does a lot better than you think it might. The photo and video below were taken with the P610 on a tripod at about 8pm once the moon had cleared the horizon.
