    Never heard of her. Having read the page on her in Wikipedia, it's another case of someone who may have been ok at one point but eventually chose to go crazy and dishonest.

    Not certain, but the night-time will raise the ISO, which from what I read is what you want to do anyway. So ISO 800 or 1600, as there will be signal noise at lower ISOs. Obviously, the other issue...

    That's better than I expected. Saturn's rings have roughly the same angular size as Jupiter. So I suspect Saturn can be seen as a planet with rings.

    Well, with 1" lens of typical long zoom camera I expect Saturn to be 2 pixels wide and rings twice of that. Just wonder if it can really be resolved as something other than a point object.[/QUOTE]

    I don't know that I've ever tried Saturn with the camera. To try I'd have to look up where it is these days. For Jupiter I can tell that it's a disc and can see that there are moons. My guess is that...
