Hello Pentaxians

New owner of a K-x.

Borrowed my sister's old Pentax film in the 70's. And moved on later in life to my wife's various low end P&S camera's.

Never owned a DSLR before but desired to see if this camera will revive my interest in astronomy on my Meade LX200 scope. Light pollution has killed most deep sky viewing, but planets may still be do able.

Like landscape, aviation and sport shooting.

Now that I'm broke I'll work on saving btwn kids college and a telephoto to add to the kit lens.

Look forward to drawing on your knowledge.

It's also nice not following the crowd towards Nikon and Canon.
