I've seen some crazy examples of zooming against the moon. Would any enterprising SX50 owners try the zooming at some other objects like Jupiter, or the international space station?

I'm curious if the 50x optical (and 200x digital) would provide enough zoom to see details on Jupiter and the ISS.

Of course a good tripod would be a must for this kind of endevour.

I haven't seen any examples of that yet, but I would sure like to hear about it if anyone has done it! I've had trouble getting the right settings to capture anything in the night sky dimmer than the moon.
