When I use Google earth I am unable to zoom in to a map reference close
enough (about 1500 ft.), which is haizy....clearer if I zoom out.
May I ask the group how I may improve my hardware to zoom in more (if
Some of you may have had experience of above?

That's only because the satellite didn't take any pictures
at higher zoom of that land area, so when google lets you
zoom in it is actually just resampling the 1X closest
resolution it has, which would do similarly as you would in
some image editing application where you resampled a picture
to a larger size, not giving more detail just smoothing the
jaggedness of the picture.
Not possible, if it looks crisp at any resolution then your
hardware is fine... though if you are using an LCD monitor
then for most sharpness you should leave the video
resolution set to the monitor's native resolution.
There is no closest setting, if you have a CRT it will be
crisper at the lower (1024x768) resolution and with an LCD
it will depend on the LCD's native resolution, but these are
only very minor changes in crispness, not what you are
referring to above which is as written that the satellite
picture just isn't taken down to that magnification... it
will vary on some parts of the maps, in particular cities
will often be more magnified than some uninteresting rural
areas because the satellite passed directly over for higher
