There are folks working on tethering here since Pentax released their SDKs into the wild. Love the Astro images!

Thanks!
It's too bad the SDK didn't include the source code. What they released was a binary that people can write a wrapper for. This means it will require reverse engineering to make work with existing softwares like those driven by pktriggercord and libGphoto...which includes the observatory software I use, Indi/ekos. I'm hoping enough voices will be heard to reverse the current trend of removing tether functions from consumer models. There's more info(whining :P) one of the tethering threads.

Of course I'll be helping develop that wrapper for Linux if I get lucky.
...though I think @MMeissner (gphoto) may already have had the k1 working before the sdk release. He's very dedicated, but I haven't checked lately.

Hello and welcome. Thanks for sharing your story, and your photos are really great. I think I like them more now that I know some of what went into the making of them.
