Hello from Ottawa, Canada

Just dropping by to say hi - I've been following this site for a while, but with the recent purchase of a K-X and an *istDL participating here is a natural evolvement of things.

I have been using SLRs for around 20 years now - Canon, Zenith, and now Pentax. I'm experimenting a bit with astrophotography (using an older Meade 900mm f8 mirror scope and self-made adapters) and flashless photography using old glass (m42 Taks and other m42/Pentax-M; the fun list so far includes SMC "bazooka" Pentax 200mm f2.5, SMC Takumar 135mm f2.5, Zenith 44m4 f2, Vivitar C-F 28mm f2). I'm hoping to can get some good critiques on my techniques by posting some pics here at some point. I have an fairly extensive electronic/mechanical/computer background as well so I welcome any type of lens/camera hacks and inventions.

Cheers,
Mike
