Tried the astrotracer in a darker sky and a smc pentax-M 200 mm f/4.0 I got for the occasion. I'm starting to really like this little gadget.


Orion's nebula 12 X 10s iso 3200



Double cluster of Perseus 1 X 20s iso 3200



Jupiter and the Twins 1 X 60s iso 3200 with 18-55 WR @18mm



Andromeda galaxy 5 X 40 s iso 3200

Thanks! Andromeda is huge, the size of 5 full moon lengthwise so a 200 mm lens captures it well. I took the 5 shots and stacked them with deep sky stacker and then removed the little sky gradient the resulting image had with iris software. Finished pp with pse11 and topaz adjust and denoise.

K-30 with Tamron 17-50mm 2.8, with some LR. Settings at f-stop 5.6, ISO 100, Shutter speed 1/100

Here's another one, with the K 135mm f/2.5, also with some LR. A little harder to nail focus with a near 40 year old manual lens, especially with the kid running at you.

The macro on the SCN mode works very well.

Taken with kit lenses, either DAL 55-300 or DAL 18-55

First one was still taken in automatic mode, hence the colors...
Second one taken in Av as RAW, with a little pp in Silkypics, the software that came with the camera.
Third one, the inevitable moon, cropped and edited.
