Hi, fellow Pentax people. I'm a retired 32-year teacher with a K-10D that I love. I live in central Florida and enjoy photographing the wildlife on and around the lake. I got a little 'antsy' in retirement, so now I'm working part-time at Walt Disney World as, what else, a photographer. It is the best job/hobby I've ever had. In fact, I would work for free if my wife let me.
My photo interests include wildlife and anything science, mostly space since Kennedy Space Center is so close. The one below is my favorite, a shuttle contrail from a few years back.

Welcome from Iowa! A bit jealous at the moment since it's 10F outside!! Don't worry I'll get over it. since your into science and space have you tried any astro photography? It always looked interesting to me, but I haven't tried it yet. anyway dive in and have fun!

Thanks and Astro-photos

Thanks to everyone for your welcome.
Joel, I have done some 'stellar' photography in the (way) past with a Mamiya-Sekor 1000 DTL, things like lunar eclipse. Take a look below at the only digital photo I took that may qualify as an astro-photo.
