Hello everyone,

I just got my own K-x a couple of days ago. Upgrading from a six year old Canon Powershot A70. Before that I was using a Pentax K-1000 and had my hands on an MX so I'll have lots of questions for this forum. Two days ago I hooked my K-x to my telescope (f.l. 1500 mm, f/11. and took a few shots of the moon. Here's a mosaic of the two best pictures:

1/160s, iso 200

Could not have been possible with the old K-1000. At least not without a lot of darkroom work.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the forum. Lovely moon shot.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.
