I recently bought myself what I would describe as a low cost utility digital camera. It has a 10x optical zoom, with a 5.1 digital zoom. Combined it gives you 51x, and this is the result. Not bad, although you can see some distortion, it is not certain if that is the atmosphere or the fact that this was a handheld shot or the quality of the digital zoom. It certainly is pretty stunning for me. You can see the contours of the craters and everything.
