I know on the K20 you can adjust the brightness of the screen. It may  
not go as dim as you may like to dim shooting situations, but it's a  
start. Same on the K-7?

Then there is a trick astrophotographers use, and that's to tape an  
ND-4 or 8 gel over the LCD. Some use a red gel, but with the coloring  
in the menus now, ND may go better.

The Big Bang was silent, and probably invisible.
— from the Pentaxian's thoughts on particle physics, so far.
