    Thanks. I used Fuji HS10 with 30x zoom so 720mm lens. The moon was still smallish in the photo so I cropped it.

    Yeah, 720mm will get you close. Wow, I just read a review for your camera, very impressive! For all practical purposes what you have is a DSLR. The reviewer raves about how good the lens is. Think about experimenting taking pictures in RAW and getting Photoshop Elements (if you don't have it) you will have a ton more options. At this level you can use your creativity to make your images more unique; it would be like you working on a picture in the dark room of yore. Cheers Alfredo

    Here is the part about the lens: A lens so good you’ll be glad you can’t change it With a range that would require at least two bulky ‘super zoom’ lenses on an SLR, the FinePix HS10’s built-in 30x wide-tele zoom lens is its crowning glory, encompassing virtually every photographic requirement in a single compact unit. Furthermore, because the lens and body on the FinePix HS10 are built as a closed unit, it eliminates the possibility of dust on the lens and Sensor - a serious problem when removing lenses on a digital SLR. The twist-barrel manual zoom control enables the photographer to make precision adjustments, and zooming is faster and more accurate than with the powered zooms traditionally used in this class of camera. The class-leading 30x optical zoom covers a uniquely versatile 24-720mm (equivalent on a 35mm camera) range from true wide-angle to ultra telephoto. From sweeping landscapes, interiors and large group shots to distant sports or wildlife action, the FinePix HS10 really is ready for every photographic challenge thrown at it. And it’s not just the huge zoom that’ll take your breath away: the Fujinon name ensures optical quality across the entire range that you’ll see from the first picture you take. Fujinon lenses are acclaimed by photographers, broadcasters (as the world’s leading manufacturer of television camera lenses) and industrial users across the globe - and even further afield: Fujinon lenses have been used in an orbital satellite to capture high-resolution photos of the surface of the moon. Triple Image Stabilisation combines a mechanically stabilised CMOS sensor with high ISO sensitivities and advanced digital stabilisation for total anti-blur protection. Together these technologies reduce the blurring effect of both handshake and subject movement to provide sharp, clean and clear results even at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging lighting conditions.

    Brian, here is the whole review: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2010/2/2/fujifinepixhs10series

    Nice but the dpreview comments are from Fuji's press release not a review. I've only had it a few weeks. The lens is great and it has nice features. But it's not as good as a dSLR for action, detail, brokeh, etc.

    Good Point, You can change the shutter speed. If you want to freeze action try setting it to 1/500 to 1/1000 whatever works best. Bokeh can be simulated in post. One of the best lenses for bokeh would be the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 L II USM but it comes with a big price. Your camera is a dSLR-like; the sensor size is 6.17 x 4.55mm compared to an entry level Canon Rebel sensor size 14.9 x 22.3mm or a full frame like 5D MKIII sensor is 24.0 x 36.0mm. The lens if fixed in you camera, so I agree it is not as good as a dSLR. Here is the review http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/q110superzoomgroup/5
