NO it is not NASA's photo it is MINE. Thanks for the link as I have contacted them and asked where they got the photo. If it was from NASA then they owe my a pile of money as I did not give them permission to use it.

Seeing all these images of the moon made me go dust off my reflector telescope. The belowe inmage was taken using a K-5, 28mm Takumar prime. It was a last min. project, I had to use 3 step down rings on a home made "T" mount. The telescope is a 8 inch 1000mm f8. Photo specs. 1/125 f2.8 100ISO.

I am still relatively new here but I had to add to the list of pets pics. I just hope mine stack up to the great shots I have seen.

This pic is of a Cat that has taken a shine to my Wife. It is still skiddish but She seems to really like the camera.

I updated my K10 to ver 1.30 downloaded the software to put the camera in "DeBug"mode. So far no problem. The camera is in debug but I can't find anywhere in the menu to adjust the focus. Excuse me of being a bit thick but I am sure there is a easy way. I have search the forums but no luck. It sounds like it is pretty obvious but I don't see it.

Thanks

I just picked up a K10 recently and I noticed the file name of the pic is strange. For example the K10 file name is " _IGP2610.JPG " and my old K100 is "IMGP4166.JPG".
I was just wondering why there is a under score at the beginning. The same thing happens in RAW as well.

I have another question. I have some lenses from my Nikon F3 and was wondering if there was a adapter to use on the K100d.

As I mentioned before I picked up some lenses and Camera at a yard sale. Here are some of the lenses I got.

Thanks for all the input. I figured it was not much better then my kit lens. The guy was asking $50 for it. I think I will pass. I did how ever pick up a deal at a local yard sale, It was a Pentax vintage I believe 1957 It was the first Pentax SLR. It came with 50mm prime and a 400mm screw mount off course and 2x tele.

Again thanks and the site regarding just lenses is a great help.

The 2 lens I have shown are bayonet mount. I do have a Takumar 1:2.2 55mm screw mount plus some more from that era. I also have a teleconverter that I can't get to work. I was playing with the other lens and found I could not get a f reading from the camera, Maybe just me . My Dads old pentax is a ME Super and I have a Nikon F3. My old Digital was a Fuji S7000.

Strange Noise

I am new to this forum and have a question. I picked up a K100d and so far it seems like a great camera. The one thing I have noticed is a wierd noise when the mirror is up something like a high pitch buzzing sound. It only happpens if I have a longer shutter speed say 1 sec and beyond. Although it will not do it in BULB mode.
Any input would be great.

Cheers
Bill
