Hi from the Idaho panhandle

Hi, I found this website as I was researching manual lenses for my Canon 40D's. I found good info about the lenses, then started researching Pentax gear, and now I'm a Pentax wannabe :-)

My name is Laurie Macrae, I'm basically a farm girl who moved to the country decades ago, from the city of Seattle, who is into photography and hunting, and I've returned to university to study Animal Science with a focus on dairy. I'm a hobby cheese-maker (it's a chemistry experiment that you get to eat). I love to photograph my cheeses :-)

I'm preparing to start practicing night sky photography- and for starters I'm hoping to get some photos of the lunar eclipse tonight if the clouds break up.

Thanks for all the great information you have here, I had fun reading about the manual lenses and looking at some of your photography. I hope you don't mind a non Pentaxian participating on your forum occasionally.

Hi and welcome Laurie.
We certainly don't mind non Pentaxians here at the forum. Just another excuse to convert them into the family.
Hope to see some cheese pictures and good luck with your night sky photography!

Welcome to the forum, that's quite an intro, I feel like I've known for years, not just two minutes.
