Usable lenses on a Kx or?

I got an offer to buy this and Im mostly interested in the Vivitar Telephoto 1:3.5 200mm but Im unsure if they really work on my Pentax Kx.

I think the tele is this one but it has something odd attached to it.
I have no idea if it is a M42 mount or a K mount or something completely different.
Can I make it work?

What about the other lenses?
The one between the Konica and the flash looks interesting

I highly doubt (given the two camera bodies there are not Pentax, or K mount) that the lens you are after would be a K mount lens (it doesn't look like one from that photo either), sorry for the bad news!

Edit: they do look interesting, might be a nice pick up for someone with a micro 4/3 camera (to use with an adapter).
