Astrophotography with K1 for Dummies

Hi All.

I have misplaced my manual and could use a little help using the Astrophotography settings on the K1. My lens choices are a 20mm f2.8 A and 15mm f4 without electric links. I know I can just shoot bulb if I have to, but I'd like to try the K1 settings. I read the manuala long time ago and recall that I need to rotate the camera prior to setting the Astrophotography settings, but I would appreciate some guidance or a recommend link to a video to try this.
