These usually aren't seen too often here so I figured I'd post this. I know I see some Moon pics from time to time by fs999 so hopefully you'll enjoy this. Also, I'm sorry to say this was taken not with a K5 but with my newly purchased K5ii-S. I got it for a steal here in Japan (brand new $800) so I couldn't pass it up. Plus it does really well for me with the astrophotography. I also know this isn't perfect work. I just like to share it. Thanks, and great pictures everyone. I love this thread.

Where in Japan did you pick it up? That's an incredible price! I live in Okinawa right now...

Josh, you did very well for a difficult target. I imagine this must have been a longer exposure or stack of longer exposures?

Jack
Thanks Jack! Yep, it's a stack of about 9 or 11 exposures. Unfortunately I don't remember cos I was just messing with the different settings in DSS and was excited at how that one turned out. It's about 29 minutes total exposure time. Thanks again!

There's a place in Hiroshima called Saeda. It had a big pink elephant on the sign. If you ever come up here it's at the end of Hondori street. The price tag said 89,700 and I told the guy I was interested in it and he said 'hold on' and came back with a yellow stickie that had just 80,000 on it. Of course I said YES! Would never happen in the States. I'm trying to find a Pentax outlet here somewhere but haven't had any luck. If you'd like me to look for you again just let me know. We go there often.

Highly appreciated !

The last one is great - I'd try a 16:9 crop in a strong black-white conversion (?)

'Rain again-3' is very nice. Well balanced scene, with nice warm colours and textures.
Pity there are no crop-circles in there - that would add some mystery and intrigue to the scene.

Thanks Mulder!

PS - I love the X Files and crop circles would've been awesome!
