Description
This was my first light shot with a new pentax 125 SDP I had the good fortune of finding the dedicated reducer for this scope..which provides a blazing fast F 4.9 with an 88mm image circle. whats even more astounding, this image was taken in a park, 12 miles north of the Chicago downtown loop, with a full moon out, some high, thin Cirrus clouds passing through. bruce karbal
