hidilly ho pentaxirinos

hi from the center of ny state. Finally had to have a digital slr, went with the K70 for obvious reasons. Dragged a P30t with a short zoom around for years outdoors, still in perfect order. Recently added an S3 in black from my father-in-law. General camera enthusiast but life / other pastimes get in the way too often. Currently do optical microscopy as part of my mat sci lab job using a stitching / focus stacking Keyence. Looking forward to using the K70 for astronomy, so far it's amazing. I seem to remember using K1000's or similar on the telescopes in college (including a 9" refractor built by Henry Fitz.)

Look forward to seeing your astrophotography work in the astrophotography group. Unfortunately Pentax is not well supported in general and even less in AP. But recently I found a solution to do interval shooting with StellarMate - Linux based. However, maybe the new Pentaxes have tethering support now. I know the K-1 does but not sure about interval shooting.
