Okay, so perhaps there's a slight lack of diplomacy, tact, and
sensitivity in that caption, but I do apologize to anyone who might
walk with a cane and dark glasses. My wife accuses me of lack of
savoire faire all the time, so it probably is true. But I forgive
myself since I was born under the sign of Sagittarius...and the stars
forgive all. (Except lousing focusing.)
When photographing an unfocused star, you are not only squandering time and money, you are also doing the star a severe disservice. It is perfect in itself shining serenely in the night sky. And here you
come along and make a blob of it in your photo. Shame, shame.
But the fault dear Brutus is not in the stars, rather in your crummy
eyesight which was designed to distinguish patterns and shapes, but
not bikini lines and pinpoint sources of light. (Deers have the
same problem crossing highways.)
The solution to the problem, of course, is to use a Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser. Whether you're into CCD, 35mm, or medium format astrophotography, the Series IV is guaranteed to put you in perfect focus. In only seconds. On the first try. Even if your vision is deteriorating like mine, the 'Stiletto' will still surpass any other focusing technique around.
Check out some of the great photos in our website Gallery that other
mortals have sent in to show off what the Series IV has helped them
accomplish. It's performance,(tact and humility aside), really is
extraordinary. And your astrophotos can be extraordinary too!
