Hello from Telemark, Norway!

I'll make a long story short. One week ago I did not know this place existed. Today I have a Pentax Q with 01 and the 5-15 lens, viewfinder and leather half-case, and 10 adapters and a Q7 on its way in the mail. Adapters are for T2, M42, Leica R, PK, and D-mount and I don't know what. It started with me buying a Coronado Solar telescope in December, and I soon realized I had the wrong cameras for doing images through it. I have never liked to use eye-pieces for photography, and the darn thing can not focus a regular camera in prime focus. Then I discovered the Q system
I promise you I'll post images with all my 10 Leica R lenses, my heavily modified mirror lenses and baffled adapters and telescopes. This is going to be so much fun!
On a totally different note ... The Q in Pentax, does it have something to do with Q in Star Trek, the guy who can do anything with everything?

Best regards
