34 shots, iso 1250 (i think), 60s, FA*400 @5.6, i need more light and less pollution

I've only tried this with a k135, and this is certainly better.

thaks! btw, what is a K135? the SMC Pentax 135mm F2.5 ?

Yup.

I'm wrong though, it was the K200/2.5 with a step down ring => f/3.2 for 220s integration.

Red or purple halos everywhere. And it didn't focus to infinity (I had a lens tech max the focus).
