Moon photo tests using Nikon D850
 
Night before last I wanted to try out the new Nikon D850 with a few longer lenses I have to see how well it would capture images of the moon. I mounted everything on my motorized tripod for astrophotography work so I could more easily track the moon and keep the camera as steady as I could. Honestly, I really need a remote shutter trigger for this purpose, as just putting my hand on the camera introduces a lot of jitter, which is certainly reflected in the photos taken. Anyway, here is the results I got.

Nikkor 500mm reflex lens:

Nikkor 1000mm reflex lens:

Sigma 50-500mm zoom lens:

Now to compare the above with an image I took using my Nikon Coolpix P900 camera with it's integral 24-2000mm zoom lens.

Personally, I think I'll stick to the P900 for photographs of the moon. Unless further trials using a remote shutter trigger improve the results I got from the D850 substantially.

Wow. I have Nikon D-350 and the result of that camera is also good but not like this. I love this photographs. Now I am thinking to exchange my camera with D-850. I bought my camera by using coupons for 2020 and by using this code I can exchange my camera as well. I am not a professional photographer, i just want it for fun.

I am feeling generous today. I removed what looked like a spam url from your above posting. I will give you just one more shot posting here to prove you are not a spammer. Otherwise....
