Nice images of Jupiter and stars ...... I thought you might like to see this image of Saturn taken with the HX100V back in May of 2013. It was taken at full optical and digital zoom with a total of 216x magnification.

Saturn as it appeared in full frame capture below.

Saturn image from above cropped on left, and compared to an amateur astronomy image below.

Impressive that it can resolve the rings. I was getting excited by three dots around Jupiter but later realised they were background stars
