startrail on k1/k3ii?

hi folks,

i must apologize as i usually linger in the background and never participate...

but i got a question for the folks using the astrotracer and/or the k3ii's shake mechanism in the camera.
i get why and how usefull this feature is for night photography, but if i actually want to catch the startrails, is there a way to shut this feature off?

im asking as i only have the pentax k5, and am planning on upgrading to the k1 when its released.

any help would be appreciated

Yes, Astrotracer isn't some sort of automatic feature. You have to intentionally select to use it. Conversely, the camera(s) function just like any other camera when not using Astrotracer so you use 30 second exposures or bulb mode for star trails just fine.
