It's on its way!

My Pentax K3-II, that is! Hoping to get into Astrophotography, maybe some landscapes too. Right now I know practically zero, so please be kind if I ask what an acronym means, or other technical words like "exposure" or "camera".

I'm only half - joking, toyed with setting up my account as "Althgebunoid" (All the gear but no idea)...but it was too much to type.

Absolutely correct. Buttons are much faster than menu surfing. Sometimes, though, it takes a bit of time to get used to a camera.

I am currently trying to get my fingers to press the ISO button next to the shutter release instead of the OK button in the middle of the 4 way where it was on the K10. Not to mention the AF button that is up top instead of over by the screen. And the different sequence to format the card. And ...
