Hi Tjompen,

Sorry I don't have another K3II to test, in fact I'm pretty sure mine might be the only one in all my country ( Argentina ).
I did another pentax yoga session today like 45 minutes and still never got a success, not even once.

Sandy, i know Astrotracer is not for moon shots, thanks.

I guess i will do more tests tomorrow just to give it a last chance.

I have no reason to think that that you didn't

As is made quite clear by the quote in my post, my comment was meant for the OP, who posted the moon shot.

polaco, you´re not alone, I´m the second guy in Argentina with a K-3 II. I bought it at Spain.

I´ve got the same problem, tried everywhere, from the mountains to plain land, no clear interference and still ain´t able to do a precise calibration, it may be a South pole thing?
Tengo el mismo problema y no quiere calibrar, probé en las montañas de Córdoba y Mendoza, sin ninguna clara interferencia y no puedo calibrar, quizás es un problema del polo sur?

Hell yeah!!!
At one moment I also thought it could be a south pole thing but then it sounded a bit weir to me so i discarded that possibility.
But then being two with the same problem makes me re think on that again... A southies problem maybe?
I think i shall have mentioned that in the incident i reported to pentax but i did not.
At this moment, after so many calibration attempts... makes me want to kill the Japanese guy in the calibration video.

Yes ordinary calibration goes flawlessly. I can calibrate it pretty fast.

Then I am at a loss. Maybe there is some kind of south hemisphere bug in the software...
