    Long story short, I've been trying to figure out how to use it. I can't seem to find any good information online. So far I've been shooting manual in bulb mode with the astrotracer on. Anything else?

    The O-GPS only works with certain Pentax bodies. With it fitted you ought to be able to get an extra menu on the body.

    My second hand unit proved to have a faulty electronic compass so couldn't run the astrotracer. Fortunately I was able to find someone who only wanted one for location logging so only lost £15 on the deal. Somewhere I still have a photocopy of the manual...

    I recon that's the reason second hand units have started to become available. Unfortunately I can't afford to splash out on either.
