On a separate note, and out of curiosity, why is your state in Canada still called 'British' Columbia... which of course leads to UJ in national flags of Australia, NZ, Fiji etc
Apologies got off topic there.
Again. Wecome to the forum.

The K3ii comes with built in GPS as opposed to the cameras mentioned so an additional outlay for the OPS-1 (GPS Unit) would be required if you want to do more than star trails. I'm sure an experienced astro-photographer will be along shortly to offer additional (& more comprehensive) advice.

Pretty sure it's a reverse adapter 49/52mm as per the lower circled item for greater magnification. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Ordered one a few days ago from eBay but hasn't arrived yet - 8 Inc p&p
