gtoth - nice bird shots. Were those taken with the HS20? They are nice and clear considering it's a teleconverter going through double pane glass. Very nice.

This is my first post by the way. I am eagerly awaiting arrival of an HS20 today or tomorrow.

The first two were taken with the HS-10. The last two were with the HS-20.

Do NOT get discourage in using the HS-20. It is one helluva camera. You need to take the time to learn it. It is NOT a point & shoot.

Welcome to Steve's, BTW.

Hi Iron horse,

I didn't know it was Jupiter when I took the pic.
I just saw a very bright light in the sky, and thinking it was the space station got out my old tripod and zoomed in.
I was quite pleased when it turned out to be Jupiter

well then you were lucky and the pic was good....

another option for astrophotography i figured out was . if you are using any android device you can install this app.. google sky map and it tell you the location of the planets and stars and etc etc.. can be a good alternative... it works well on my s2.. will try a few shots and upload them soon..

Jupiter has lots of moons (I can't argue with post that said 64), but of those four are significantly larger than the others and were well known to early astronomers. The orbits of the four moons are so well known that they were proposed as means of calculating the correct time for navigation in the late 1700s - before the clocks made by Harrison were shown to be accurate enough to be used for navigation.

I have just received my HS10 and was browsing the forums when I saw this photograph - it's a pretty impressive picture. I hadn't been planning any astronomical pictures with it - but I did see some moon shots when trying to decide what to buy.

Unfortunately it's raining, so I'm browsing forums instead of playing with my new toy!

The "Big Four" you see are Ganymede,Callisto,Io and Europa.
Ganymede is the largest moon in the Solar System- larger than Planet Mercury,larger that the now "Dwarf" planet Pluto and 3 times larger than our Moon...

Your newest pic certainly is prettier, Tony, it's also am amazing shot! I had no idea that the current bridge cameras were capable of achieving images like this.
