Greetings creatures of the night!I was just wondering if anyone has used a pentax with that sensor shift resolution thing for astro stuff.Would it even be possible (given that tracking is good enough) ?I would have started a new thread but believe it or not I don't know how to!

check if the camera can work without a lens (i.e. with a telescope) if you get the bug big time you will want to upgrade to that way of doing things and changing systems is a right royal pain.

This is one of the reasons Canons do well for astro.


Sprained my foot so wasn't able to get out to a good dark sky area this past dark cycle. I shot this in my back yard... Mars and Saturn in Scorpius. Hopefully the weather will clear up and I'll have a good go at a better dark sky area and hopefully with low humidity as well.


nicely done, your astro skills are certainly getting better.

"I couldn't care less about.." = this is the bottom of my list.. it is so unimportant.
