The image quality is probably not as good as a recent iPhone, but it definitely has better optics to enable you to get closer to the subject to photograph things like planes or birds in flight and other wildlife, or UFOs.Yesterday I saw a C17 at extremely low altitude making a sharp turn - a much sharper bank that you'd ever see a commercial aircraft. I want something better than an iPhone for this and my wife produced this out of a closet. Barely used but old. Any opinions?

Depends entirely on the subject. If you wanted an external shot of the Empire State Building, not only is an iPhone adequate for this, but you would probably also want to stand further than fifty feet from it to take your picture.In the JFK thread I just showed that an iPhone is far from optimal past maybe 50 feet.
Actually, an interview with Kevin Knuth is what got me trying to photograph planes with my iphone. I guess be challenged his students with that. I’m familiar with Albany and the airport he’s near and see that’s a good idea. Target rich environment.
I know Knuth is involved in UAP studies and has published papers on the topic. Last I heard he got involved in what sounded like ‘fringe pseudoscience’ although admittedly I didn’t look into it much. Whales. Good Star Trek movie, not so sure about this
