Hi from Scotland

Hi all,

I've had my K-S2 for a little over year now and have found the forum reviews really helpful in deciding on which old primes to buy. So thanks to all who contribute! I'm hoping to save up for a reasonably priced astrophotography lens if anyone has recommendations.

Try the Sigma 10-20. The older version is priced nicely on the used market. The constant f3.5 lens is quite nice but a bit more. Q, what do you consider"reasonably priced"?

Thanks! I was hoping for something under $300, although I realize that may be tough to find

Welcome to the clubhouse!
There are a couple of threads for astrophotgraphy - you can see what the guys are using.

Welcome to the forum, no idea about Astro stuff, it's too dark here to go out after sun down without falling over.

Give EBay a try. Search for "Sigma 20mm Pentax". There are some options in your price range.

Good luck!
