Well, that was the gist of the phone call. And not from
Hawaii, but from Colorado. Mal had just gotten back from
his tour to Mauna Kea with the Astronomy magazine tour
group. While setting up his own gear outside of the
observatory with the group, he complained to a fellow companion
about how he was so tired of blowing time and money
on 35mm film. The fellow, who was from Canada, turned to him and
said, "Boy, do I have a surprise for you!"
And that's when Mal got his first live look through a Series IV
'Stiletto' focuser. He said, "I was instantly hooked, and
amazed at how simple it was to operate." I asked him how
long it took him to focus his OIympus OM with it.
"Just under 20 seconds on my first try." He went on, "I've
tried all the bright screens and magnifiers around, and nothing
compares." And he wound up ordering a Series IV Deluxe 'Stiletto'
for his own OM, and warned me that he also had a friend nearby
And that, colleagues, is how the 'Stiletto' has grown to be the
most popular and successful focusing device around for 35mm and
CCD astrophotography. It's not 4-color ads in the magazines, or
even my own plainly biased hype here on AstroMart. It has come
from the recommendations of people who have used and come to trust
the performance of the Series IV in the field. There are many
more stories just like Mal's, and you can see photos in the
picture Gallery on our website they have sent in just to
But the really good news is that you don't have to go all the way up
a mountain in Hawaii to find the solution to your problem from a
stranger. Try out a Series IV 'Stiletto' yourself and take some
pictures. We offer a 30-day Clear Sky money-back guarantee on every
