Yeah way to go Bill!
Have you tried recording video of the moon or Jupiter with that camera and putting the vid in Registax??

I have not had much luck shooting vid in the LX3, can't seem to get the exposure right. So I stick with shutter priority in burst mode and stack the good ones in Registax, but so far only a few Jupiter images.
