Pentax K-3 and DA* 50-135 f/1:2.8 at 80mm (35mm eq. 120mm), 1/400 sec., f/16.0, ISO 100, 0 EV, center weighted average

Full-frame of the 'inside' of DSS-24 34m dish at Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex Apollo Valley station on the Fort Irwin National Training Center Army base outside Barstow, California in the Mojave Desert.

First time using the 50-135 after it was 'converted' to screw drive and the SDM was disabled. Conversion works fine.

It's a lovely and sharp picture. Blue always makes White whiter and White always makes Blue bluer. This really pops
