    To hell with MF, I'm going all the way.

    I'm just worried about the waiting list to get one of these.

    I'm sure that by the time it's operational there's going to be a P&S with 3.3 Gazillion MP that will cost $99.99

    Ah- nice ! Did you see there is already a roosewood handgrip for it and I think I´ve seen Metabones doing an Leica M lens adapter for it !

    I've heard that there's visible banding when you view photos taken with it at ISO 900,000 with the lens cap on after a 35 hour exposure if you view them at 200% wearing a pink hat. Oh, and Stefan; you can't use that rosewood handgrip when the camera is on a tripod during full moon. Says so in the user manual page 3,764. I've cancelled my pre-order already, at least until there's a Pentax Q adapter available. I hate dragging heavy lenses around

    Do we all, automatically, go to hell if we acquire MF kit?
    ...and do we get to take the kit with us?

    Looks good, but although I've never used this telescope I hear the Nikon D800 is almost as good and much cheaper. Someone should tell the DOE.
