    The Fuji FinePix SL-1000 has a maximum zoom of 100x digital. Other settings, e.g. ISO, F-stop, Shutter speed, are also very easily adjusted between shots. I use a very sturdy tripod with a 3-point geared head. Since the objects in the sky are constantly "moving" this makes it easier to get the object properly framed. In addition, I normally use a 2-second delayed shutter. All of this helps get a crisper/clearer shot of those far away objects in the sky at night.

    This shot shows Jupiter and the Four Galilean Moons. Notice how two of them are very close together.

    One BIG benefit at this time is that Jupiter is the closest to earth that it has been in 59 years. The distance range for Jupiter to earth is: 365 million miles vs. 601 million miles. And, I would assume there's nearly 60 years between the two.

    That IS a big difference, absolutely.

    365 million miles, so easy to say but what a distance! Amazing.
