Welcome old4570. I'm sure you'll really enjoy that K5. I wish I had one! I bet you are looking for a really long lens for those moon shots. Don't forget to share your images when you get them. The moon is a beautiful creature.

Hi again old4570, I'm looking forward to those moon shots. I couldn't find the link in your last post, but I am still looking forward to them.
I'm glad you're here, Joe.

Thanks for helping me out. I'm still new here so I don't always know how things work. I found it now, though. Great moon shot. I love how the trailing edge fades into the blue. There is always something beautiful about the moon. Night or day. Craters and all.

Hi, Oldguy!
What is the camera/lens mount you have there? I have an old 500mm (non-mirror) which I think could greatly benefit from such a contraption.
