What is the best teleconverter to use for the HS20? Is an adapter required? Where is a good place to purchase?

Also, what are the pros and cons on the use of a teleconverter on a DSLR compared to on a superzoom bridge camera?

Hi Jerry,

I have the Sony VCL DH-1758 mounted on my HS10 and made Saturn (Five shots in a row, then stacked them with "photomatix", final result 5x upsized). This should work with the HS20 either.

I have seen some nice moon shots as well. Saturn is not easy, especially right now, when the distance of the planet is increasing. It was done when the planet was close to opposition.

Regards
Nic

And here is another one but without the TC - pure camera...
