Not sure they thought folks buying a superzoom would use it for long exposures.

I think they had other shooters in mind when making the worlds longest reaching superzoom.

They only recently added RAW.

I bought it for bird spotting and photography. Just wanted to test it for astrophotography too because of the high magnifications.

I see.

I have two dslr camera and telescope that I use for astrophotography mainly.

I' m clueless about this.

I hope some day someone makes custom firmware to get rid of exposure limits.

I hope for you they do. But firmware wont help the noise.

Yeah but I'm going to do image stacking, so noise doesn't matter.

Oh. OK.

Haven't done any of that yet.

I was trying to think what Nikon designed this camera for. Of course whatever we want to shoot with it, is up to us.

I've yet to venture into Astrophotography.

60 second exposure is too short for deepsky astrophotography with big F numbers.

Oh. Didnt know this either.

Seems I opened my mouth too soon

I'm doing some long exposure astrophotography of deep sky objects with my p1000 and equatorial tracking mount soon.

Would love to see some of these type shots from you.

Hope it works out for you.

Stay healthy


Thanks, you too.



for easy automatic stacking please try free Deep Sky Stacker software and Sequator (also free) which removes light pollution.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
