Transit of Venus

I used the K-01 attached to a Tele Vue 76 telescope prime focus to capture some images of the transit of Venus. Manual focus was required and I found the focus peaking feature very handy in acquiring accurate focus. Liking the K-01 and getting some great images with this camera. First post here - so nice to be here - enjoy shooting Pentax with K5 and K-01- link attached .Zenfolio | dmdeegan photography | Transit of Venus

Thanks. I agree about the manual focus, especially since the K-01 doesn't auto focus so well in low light - just switch to manual focus, enable focus peaking - and good to go!
