During the June 1995 flight of the Medium Scale Anisotropy Measurment (MSAM), observations were made of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Preliminary results of those observations will be reported, with a discussion of the systematic effects which will ultimately limit such calibrations for microwave background experiments.
