Living at the edge of a small town, I tend to see more stars in the night sky than I did years earlier, when I was a big-city-dweller. I often think about trying to photograph some of them - or parts of the sky - but the combination of laziness + too-many-other-things-on-the-platter has effectively stopped me.

Last night I decided to try again. And Pentaxes have a reputation of being good cameras for astrophotography. Here's one of my first results---

I think a lot was down to my composition - lots of little things and fragmented light. I need to get the lens out of the house and into the outside world - get a better feel for its capabilities. Certainly seems better than the Nikkor 45 pancake. I'll also have to keep an eye out for the AF version - these pancakes make the K-5 very compact.
