Hello from Glasgow Scotland

I am returning to photography after a few years of doing other things. I am particularly interested in two fields, almost at the opposite ends of the photographic spectrum; portraits, where I have both practical and college experience, and astrophotography, which is completely new to me! (I blame the BBC and Prof Brian Cox for some recent excellent and inspiring TV programmes!)

I have been involved in photography on and off for fifty years, never previously owning a Pentax. After a great deal of research and also good advice from my local photo shop, I chose Pentax, (the K-r). There were many reasons for eventually chosing Pentax (over Canon), not least of which was the ability to aquire high quality primes at good prices.

I have since learned of this website and I am delighted to be a part of it. (Just posted a photo on the Pentax Day forum!)

Congrats on your new K-r and welcome to the forums. Hope to see some of your night shots when you get some as well as any from your neck of the woods.
