Lens or camera?

Definitely let us know what gear and settings you're using. Have you tried dismounting the lens, cleaning the contacts, and also using a manual air blower to clean the camera's mirror box?

As others have noted, unless your lens has quick shift (DA L and film era lenses do not), you should never try turning the focus ring while the camera is in AF mode. Try setting the camera to manual focus, switch to live view, and then see if proper focus can be obtained.

Was the lock function activated on accident, perhaps? If you re-mount the 90mm, does the screen stay off?

Pentax K-70 can't get astrotracer to work
Posted By Adam

We recently did a write-up on this topic:


O-GPS1 vs Built-in GPS Guide - Astrotracer Calibration - In-Depth Articles
O-GPS1 vs Built-in GPS Guide - Astrotracer Reliability - In-Depth Articles

A few takeaways:
-Calibrate multiple times, while sitting down, slowly along one axis at a time. It may take a few attempts for the accuracy to increase.
-4 minutes is not realistic, somewhere in the 30-120 second range is generally going to be the sweet spot, from my experience

The k-70 does have a bulb timer. Set the mode dial to B, then I believe you press either the green button or the exposure compensation button to switch to the timer. The proper button will be indicated on the status screen, along with a little timer icon.

Sticky: (Beta) Pentax Lens Compability Checker Tool

I've added a few more things:

1. Compatibility filtering is now supported in our Lens Search, for compatible, partially compatible, and incompatible lenses. You can select multiple cameras to ensure that a lens works with all of your cameras. Examples:
Lenses incompatible with Pentax K110D | PentaxForums.com
Lenses partially compatible with Pentax K-1 II and Pentax K-1 | PentaxForums.com
Lenses compatible with Pentax KP | PentaxForums.com

2. If you only enter a lens in the compatibility checker, its compatibility for all cameras will be shown:
HD Pentax-DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited Camera Compatibility | PentaxForums.com

3. If you only enter a camera, a link to the Lens Search compatible lens listing will be provided. Currently, the full list of lenses in the same mount is also shown directly on the page, though I am considering removing it or refining it due to unnecessary clutter.
Pentax K-1 II Lens Compatibility | PentaxForums.com

4. When you view a camera and lens combination, you will get the view from (2) and also a list of other lenses incompatible with that camera
Pentax *ist D and SMC Pentax-DA 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye ED[IF] Compatibility | PentaxForums.com

Also, the correct compatibility info will now be shown for the Pentax Q and adapted focus-by-wire lenses:
Pentax Q and HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Compatibility | PentaxForums.com

Enjoy and please keep the feedback coming!

Which Body for Pentax M42 lenses

The better the live view, the easier it will be to focus. Obviously the K-1 would probably be the go-to, since you get the full frame sensor and a very large tilting display, but I'd also recommend the KP, K-70, or K-3.
