Dean Martin may have said "it's amore" alright, but evidently he wasn't trying to take a good picture of the heavenly body through a telescope. If your own pictures of the Moon look like pizza, you're probably not in love with anything except the memory of how Cher and it looked in the movie 'Moonstruck' (my favorite astronomy flick).
If that's the case, you should know that the Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser works great for lunar and planetary astrophotography too! Both eyepiece projection and prime focus astrophotography are a snap with a Series IV. Take a look below at one of Jay Ouelett's photos that made the cover of Sky & Telescope a while back. He was using a Series II 'Stiletto' to focus his venerable Olympus OM at the time.
While Jay's Series II was super, the new Series IV 'Stiletto' is now
technologically miles ahead of it. Based on the use of an advanced
300 line/inch black chromium ronchi screen, pinpoint focusing with a
Series IV is even easier and more precise. And if you haven't heard by now, 'Stiletto' models are available for all CCD cameras, as well as all 35mm SLR cameras. In short, the Series IV is flexible, modular, obsolencence-proof, highly ergonomic, and guaranteed - a lot like Cher ( but far more economical.)
Series IV 'Stiletto' models start at only $179 - about the price of just ten Peter Piper Pepperoni Pan pizzas. Visit our website today for more information, or just give us a call at 1-800-232-9416 anytime.
