New user/astrophotographer

I'm new here...just getting interested in the Pentax system, mostly due to the new GPS/Astrotrack system. I've been an avid astrophotographer and am excited to see what the new system can do.

I've also always wondered why Canikon and others don't have the modes that Pentax does...everything just makes sense.

I'm getting a K5 and building up the rest over time.

Looking forward to exchanging ideas and reporting on the Astrotracker once it's released.

Welcome from Oregon as well! That new feature will be interesting to see in action, though sadly it seems I chose k-x at the wrong time but I'm still quite happy, it's a great camera. We look forward to your thoughts & images once the K-5 and the new accessory reach you.
