An iOptron SmartEQ Pro and a small refractor will work like the Astrotech AT65Q. I've used that combo before. You can also run it with the DFA 150-450.

Sure, it was the K1 attached to an Explore Scientific David Levy Comet Hunter mounted to an iOptron IEQ45 with autoguiding, dithering, and intervalometer control viable an MGEN II and 50mm Astromania guide scope. I took 30x 180 second exposures, then 20 dark frames, 10 flat frames, and 50 bias frames and stacked them in Deep Sky Stacker 4.1.1, then did some curves, levels, noise reduction, contrast, and saturation in Photoshop CS6.

I took a pic of the Flame and Horsehead region last night. Froze too. 731mm focal length mak-newt that I can't get the friggin' collimation dead on with which is why the weird diffraction spikes. Also a crop of M33 from the same setup.

I have far too many hobbies. Target shooting (rifles and handguns), astronomy, going to anime cons and collecting all that otaku stuff, and of course photography.

I got the same form letter, but when I filled out the form on the site and gave my info it said to wait until they contact you before mailing it in. If, based on the timeframe given to others, they will not get it done until after Christmas, I'd just about call and ask for the camera back if I didn't have a backup body.

Nope, no filters at all. The full spectrum mod means I got a lot of Ha.

I took this on Sunday night with my full spectrum K-01 and an Explore Scientific David Levy Comet Hunter mounted on an iOptron IEQ45 mount. Since I accidentally glued the mode dial when I put it back on it is stuck in M mode, so I could only do 30 seconds. Still, I did 140 of them using the internal intervalometer in the camera and then stacked and processed them. I think it turned out okay, though it could use more integration.

Good. I got mine in and registered in time, but still have the camera here until I get notice to send it on in.

Mine actually is the SMC Pentax K mount, and yes, the thing is really heavy for its size. It feels like it weighs as much as my Tamron 24-134 autofocus lens, maybe more!

The DA 1.4 TC is awesome and doesn't seem to give any issue with IQ at all, but is not FF compatible. Too bad, I wish it were.

I just looked at mine and it has blades, but no way for me to know how many elements. Thinking of selling mine because I use my Samyang 135 instead.

They really need to throw us DSLR users a bone, even if it is a set of tentative specs for something released in early 2019, we need something. Having no replacement for the K3 line and stocks of them running out really leaves a huge hole. Perhaps a stopgap K3iii with expanded ISO, but everything else the same is something they can do.

Sigma announced some new lenses that I'd like to have available, but obviously will not come in Pentax mount, including a new uber bigma 60-600 Five New Global Vision lenses | Sigma Corporation of America

Sounds like as of now all we get is a camera I have no interest in at all.

Any word on the K3 replacement? How about a 645z update or replacement? Any plans for something longer than the 150-450, perhaps the 150-600 rebadged from Tamron? How about an update to the FA LTD lenses? How about something along the lines of a 24-135 f/4 WR? 4K or even higher resolution?

My question is if it would be worth it for me. I use mine for 80% astrophotography.

I simply enjoy target shooting.

Also, if you think guns are expensive, try astrophotography.

I already have a perfectly working film camera, and I simply don't use it. Maybe I should go ahead and run the rolls I have through it.

Still, that being said what you're describing would be incredibly niche market, quite expensive to produce, and so other than in someone's dreams I don't think you will see anything like it. I imagine it would cost more than the K1 does.
