Hi all,

My Ist Dl has stopped working on the mains adapter, the adapter is still fine and output voltage and amperage have been checked and are ok.
The camera worls fine with batteries but, I am into astro photography which involves very long exposure times of 15-25minutes each exposure and my rechargeable's just dont cope. Can anyone suggest what it may be, or are there and better batteries or how do I rig up to power from th epower supply direct through the battery contacts.

Hello everyone, Im Kev from Dudley west Midlands, England. I have a Pentax ist dl camera which was given to me by a mate from work, I only have the 18-55mm lens which came with the camera although I wont be using lenses as I will be using the body for astrophotography and as such the camera mounts direct to my telescope via a T-piece adapter. I have just one question for the moment and that is, due to the viewfinder being "frosted" it i svery hard to focus on what astronomers call DSO's (deep sky objects like nebulars and far distant galxies) which to the naked eye look like smudges, Can the view finder be changed for a clear one or is this impractical?
