From the horse's mouth. K-01 Astrotracer.

PENTAX K-01: "Equipped with the PENTAX O-GPS1 device (an optional GPS unit launched in June 2011), the K-01ís SR system helps astrophotographers track and shoot celestial bodies."

Still waiting...

Yeah, it's odd that several firmware updates have not gotten this ball rolling. I guess the K-01 does not have composition adjust to start from?

As I said in another thread, Pentax talked about it at the launch, then the K-01 flopped, and it's very unlikely that they will add features to a discontinued camera that only sold at entry-level prices. If it had flown at launch, who knows? But that train sailed last summer. (Can I get any more cliches into this? )

Regardless of any defense to limitations, this is the 1st time I've been irked with Pentax in over 20 years. The concerns are legitimate.
