There's one parked just a few cars away from my car at work everyday -- I'll try to remember to take my P900 with me Monday and get a few shots.

very cute ....

But a guy in Panasonic forum stacked 3 1.8X extenders to a FZ-200 -- AND used its digital-zoom and did quite well.

But I suspect the P900 could do better w/ less "extenders".

I think the P900 will do better. Fz200 ( EFL-600mm) x1.7x1.7x1.7 is roughly EFL-3000mm.

But with LOTS of glass introducing optical trouble.

My 2 cts, P900 (with x1.7 TC ??) will do better, but no one tried yet.

I havent done any stacking yet, so with a bit of care, you can get a very good shot of Saturn with a steady sky and several good frames carefully aligned.

Here's a single shot

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
