GDay from Aus

Hello Everyone,
Just took possession of my Pentax KP.
Decided to come back to Pentax after originally using a Ricoh KR-10M film camera back in the day.
My first digital camera was a Sony DSC-F717. What a fantastic camera, its been my workhorse for the past 14 years. Its only just starting to fail.
I decided it was time to upgrade to a DSLR and use all the old gear from my film days.
So far only 1 lens and my old flash gun are not compatible with the PK.
Enough chat, I got a new camera to play with.
Chat later,
DeKay

Welcome to the Forum. I appear to be the first from Aus to say it's good to have you here. You will find there are quite a few of us. The test shots say you are starting in the right direction.

Thanks for all the kind words guys.
But, by “up the road” you mean all away across the other side. I’m in Perth.

Just waiting for some clear skies so I can try all the Astro functions of the KP.
I also cant wait to connect it up to my 8” F7 reflector and get some close ups of the moon and maybe even the gas giants.
Exciting times.
