Hi all, I posted this question in Fuji site before realising I probably should have posted it here.

I have a Fuji 602zoom that I would not part with for the world,but I would liketo take some shots of the moon and be able to zoom in a lot closer. Can anybody recommend a suitable lens that will allow me to get a lot closer than in the pic I have attached? Thanks in advance for any help.

Being a fixed lens camera, your choices are very limited to the telephoto lens which is not that better. If you want to delve into the big stuff, I`m afraid you will have to sell your 602 and go SSLR

Maybe it is a little limited, rather than very limited.

Take heart cock3tail, it's not that bad.

The 602 has a 6x optical zoom, equ to 210mm in 35mm terms

And there are several add on tele converter lenses you can use, up to 1.9x that = 400mm in 35mm terms.

How would one consider or afford selling the 602 to buy a dslr, with a lens to equal 400mm ?
