    Love that photo. I presume from the shape of the house that there are windows under there somewhere!

    I have to say Pete,you are one lucky man getting all this kit "donated" to you.:cool:
    Is it always via your club?
    I`ve never been that fortunate,but then I don`t belong to a club.
    Are you able to use all or any of it?Well I can see from the Pentax photos you posted that this one gets used.

    All the best and keep shooting.;)
