I am always surprised at how SBIG and Starlight Xpress owners
battle it out at the star parties and club meetings. The plain
truth is that both are extremely fine camera systems. And the other
truth is that both brands are very hard to focus! Both require you
to iterate and reiterate screen shots until your eyes and pixels tell
you it's okay to take a picture. And while you've been going back
and forth all that time focusing, the temperature changes,
your mirror flops, you lose centering, and the clouds come rolling in.
The Series III 'Stiletto' focuser for CCD imagers is a guaranteed
way to make your time at the scope more productive. The Series III
will put you in focus in seconds - not minutes - and will attain
a pinpoint focus even pixels envy. A clear image to start out
with in processing will do wonders for the quality of your work.
The old adage 'garbage in, garbage out' could never be more true than
in CCD imaging.
Check out the Series III for yourself on our website today, and see
what others have said about it. The Series III is a part of the
analog world you really won't want to let go of. Models are
available for the entire SBIG and Starlight line and come with
our unconditional 30-day clear-sky guarantee.
...and at the next meeting or star party, wink at that fellow CCDer
while you show him the photo.
