I tested the "astrotracer" function of my new K-1 from my lawn. This uses the built-in GPS and the sensor movement otherwise used for in-camera shake reduction to move the sensor in sync with the rotation of the earth so that stars do not leave a trail for exposures up to 5 minutes. There was a lot of ambient light, and I did not expect to see the Milky Way in the shot.
Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
