Pentax O-GPS1 questions

Okay, two big questions. How does the star-tracer feature work, and will that feature work on my K-x?

See our review for detailed info on how it works, and for samples:

The GPS unit doesn't support your K-x.

Hrm. Well, will it work with the K-01?

According to Adam's link, yes it does.

And the Star Tracer works by shifting the sensor (using the same mechanism as the image stabilisation) to compensate for the movement of the Earth relative to the stars.
