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
