Nikon Coolpix P1000 Moon Photos

In this setup, the Coolpix P1000 camera, renowned for its lunar photography capabilities, is mounted on a tripod for taking moon pictures. It features a specialized ‘Moon Mode’ for such purposes. Assuming there’s minimal wind or vibration, the outcomes are consistently high-quality. However, a noticeable detail is the slight yellow tint in the photos.

Where to buy the Coolpix P1000

Extended QR Plate for better balance

This QR plate is 120 mm making for a better balance on the tripod head.

Carbon Fiber Tripod with Monopod

This is a full size durable and lightweight tripod.

Geared Tripod Head

This is essential for controlling the P1000 super zoom. Elevation is limited to 15 degrees in the standard configuration. I turn it around backwards to shoot elevations as high as 90 degrees.
