Connect the view that we see with our eyes at dusk to the photos that we might see taken with a powerful zoom lens… moon craters and all. YouTuber Lothar Lenz demonstrates his Nikon P900‘s powerful capabilities, including its 83x optical zoom lens, in 2015.

Daniel Pelletier also filmed the moon with the same camera from a parking lot in Quebec, Canada. In just moments he travels all the way to the moon with some amazing detail. Update: The original video has been removed from YouTube. See the gif below:
