And another moonshot...
Lens: Sigma DG 28-300 f/3.5-6.3 Camera: K5 Photo Location: my very light polluted balcony in Mt. Juliet TN ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F6.7

It was actually shot at 1/160, but the menu doesn't let me select that. So, on to the post. I shot this tonight on my VERY light polluted balcony at the apartment complex I am in, and I did it hand held manual focus with my super soft at anything over a 50% crop Sigma 28-300. I really need a much sharper long lens to get the most out of the K5 for night shots. Anyway, here's the 100% crop of it!

Turned out great, isn't it nice that photos taken with the K5 can be cropped and yet be so clear.

Yes, that is one thing I love about my K5. Now I just need some good glass on the long end for it!
