I hope I'm not the first to tell you that, but I do suspect there are
some hangers-on around here. For me, astronomy and disillusionment
with the bearded gift-bearer have been indelibly interwined since I
was 9 years-old. It was about this time of year when I made my
final sit on Santa's lap at a now-defunct department store and
asked for a telescope. It was a pre-Tasco 3" refractor that had
caught my eye as I lusted through the mailorder catalogs. As
Christmas approached, I was pretty confident Santa would throw one in
his sleigh. But as a guarantee, I even included the plea in my
nightly prayers just in case it turned out God and Santa Claus
happened to be in cahoots. (This, btw, is one of those basic questions
that goes unanswered thoughout life.)
It was about a week later. I am still unsure how I fell going up the
stairway at home. But as I lay sprawled on the last step, I looked up
and saw through my older brother's open bedroom door. There, under
his bed, I noticed a long narrow box. While I got D's in Reading
when I was 9, I really was fairly fluent in catalog words. And the
big bold print on the side of that box spelled 'TELESCOPE'.
At any rate, when you do receive your Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser
for Christmas, please note there is no bold 'FOCUSER' word on
the box anywhere. Now you know why. Ignorance is bliss up to a
point. But if you are still having problems getting pinpoint star
images on film or on that CCD chip, it is time to become unignorant
and take a look at the Series IV. It truly is the very best
focusing device around for astrophotographers. We have a model to
match your camera too!
Visit our website today for detailed information on how a Series IV
is guaranteed to cheer up your holiday season... and please don't
look under the beds at home for at least two more weeks.
Clear and Happy Holidays!
