Pentax has announced its new GPS unit for DSLR cameras, the Pentax O-GPS2*, although it will not be available until the end of 2022. A replacement for the original Pentax O-GPS1, it will provide more reliable, higher-precision positioning data of celestial bodies.

The Pentax O-GPS2* will also inherit the features of its predecessor, including the Astrotracer function, which couples the unit with the camera's SR (Shake Reduction) system for simplified tracing, which could make it one of the best pieces of astrophotography equipment around.
