Lens: Pentax-D FA 24-70mm Camera: Pentax K-1 ISO: 50 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F3.5

The first is a composite of the moon taken with my K-5 at 450 mm (for an effective focal length of around 675 mm), and the night sky with my Samyang 14 mm, both on the same night in the Santa Ynez Mountains. The second is a night shot looking up the face of Morro Rock using the 24-70 mm. Orion's Belt can be seen left of center. In the versions posted here, far fewer stars are visible than in the images I'm looking at in Lightroom. Not sure why this is the case.
