canon speedlight with pentax super program?

Hello all, I don't use flash very often with my photography and I don't currently have a Pentax flash for my Super Program but I do have an old Canon Speedlite 60F that works just fine. Would that flash unit work ok with my Super Program or would it mess with the electronics in the camera body? The manual gives dire warnings about using anything but pentax flashes with the Super Program. Any suggestions on inexpensive, general purpose pentax flash units would be appreciated. I do intend to eventually get a pentax flash to go with the camera. Thanks.

I think you can safely use the flash with your Super Program.

I don't know its trigger voltage, and I don't know if the Super Program cares about trigger voltage. But I can tell you that I've been using my Super A (European name of the Super Program) with a Sunpak 611 with trigger voltage of about 200V without any problem.
