Default Jupiter and its 4 moons

" I took this picture with my HS20 on October 2nd (06-15 am) from NW London.
There was a bright light in the sky which I thought to be the space station , when it turned out to be Jupiter I thought "cool" even better ..
The 4 small white dots are not visible to the naked eye,and I was surprised to see them when I viewed the pic full size.
Once again this camera (30x zoom) amazed me ...

If you put a TCON-17 on that bad boy, and it takes it out to 1224mm! You'd better have a tripod, though.

Hi Gary ,
I've never used any type of lens adapter, but I imagine there would be quite a loss of image quality.(not that my pic has a lot of detail).

If you get a QUALITY teleconverter, loss of IQ is very minimal. Much of the junk you see on eBay for bargain prices is what you're talking about. The TCON-17 is not even in the same ballpark.

Here are a few examples. I actually had to bring in the zoom on some of these as the subject was too close for good composition. And, these were captured through double-pane windows.

Yeah Gary, I see what your saying,the IQ is really good.
Something to think about.
I particularly like the blue jay one with the peanut,
I thought it was only the greedy jay in my garden
that swallows peanuts shell an' all ..

That is amazing. I like the fact that it picked up more than was visible to the naked eye and Jupiter came out bigger in your photo than I would have thought. Nice catch.

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.
Tony
