With the help of the shake reduction system within the camera, the O-GPS1 unit tracks movement in the heavens and adjusts the camera's sensor to snap blur-free images of stars and planets
The O-GPS1 unit is powered by a single AAA-type battery so won't drain power from the camera it's attached to
In addition to geotagging images with earth-bound locations, the new O-GPS1 unit from Pentax can also track the movement of stars and planets and shift the sensor to make sure heavenly shots are blur-free

A new GPS module designed for use with the latest digital SLR cameras from Pentax could help photographers who like to capture shots of the heavens avoid annoying star trails on long exposure shots. As well as adding earth-bound location information to images, the weather-resistant O-GPS1 unit also tracks the location and movement of celestial bodies and, with the help of the shake reduction system within the camera, shifts the image sensor in sync with the movement of the stars and planets.
