So I live near an airbase for the Royal Australian Navy, the airbase is out of line of sight however the big radar tower they use is visible from my roof. I used google earth and calculated that it is around 3.75km away. I want to get a closeup with 100x zoom on my S22 ultra however it is really blurry. How do I fix it?

Thanks

The 100x zoom is not a 100x optical, it goes 10x optically and then zooms digitally for the remainder. At that distance, you can improve the image by stabilizing the phone or perhaps with some manual settings in pro mode, but you're probably not going to get a particularly crisp picture.

What TipsyTrex said. Make sure to enable scene optimizer. Other than that, the most zoom you're gonna get with good detail is around 30x on a S23 Ultra. Which is still a  of a lot of zoom.
