This one was from a frame grab from the original video of Saturn:

Mars in April 2016 Nikon P900 at max optical zoom

These snaps of Mars taken in April 2016 show that even Mars can be captured by Nikon P900. At maximum optical zoom of 83 X, here are the results. I processed the Mars snaps in Restax 6 and Picasa (both freeware). I could actually see the Martian clouds and polar ice cap with a bonus- Olympus Mons and nearby large mountains. All the Nikon snaps were done using either non tracking tripod or handheld.

Nikon P900 snaps of the full moon

At max optical zoom of 83X this was what I got from Nikon P900 this month (full moon) edited in picasa for brightness and contrast.
