If you've spent 60 minutes bent over in the cold guiding your scope
and have felt like a total idiot when your picture of the comet came
out fuzzy, read on!
Most amateur astrophotographers who give up the hobby are victims of
FFDS - 'Fuzzy Focusing Depression Syndrome'. They sacrifice an inordinate amount of time, money, and effort for a lot of 'blur', bloated star images, and no fun.
There really are only two choices available: 1) burn the pictures, take an aspirin, and hope to get lucky the next time, or 2) check out the Series III 'Stiletto' focuser which guarantees pinpoint focusing every time in a matter of seconds.
Here's what Jim Brownfield had to say:
"Hi Richard, hope all is going well for you. I took the attached
photo Sunday morning, 7/15/01, using your infallible Stiletto, a 5"
refractor, an OM1 and Kodak 400 PPF film for a 30 minute exposure."
The Series III, for both 35mm and CCD astrophotography, uses precision ronchi-based knife-edge focusing which is guaranteed to save you time, money, and all the focusing effort. You will finally have some photos you can be truly proud of. Check out the photo Gallery on our website to see what Jim others have been able to accomplish and what you can expect for yourself.
And, say goodbye to 'FFDS' forever with a Series III 'Stiletto'!
