If you have a Starlight XPress CCD camera, you're in for a real treat
using the Series III 'Stiletto' for focusing. Here's what Rob Bensko
had to say about his recent photos of Jupiter and Saturn:
"I should mention that I did not do any stacking or any fancy imaging
processing with these images, but simply performed the basic procedures
outlined by Terry Platt in the MXC7 manual. I used the Series III
MX7C focuser on a nearby star and then slewed the scope to Jupiter.
I think you'll agree that the focuser works very well, so well that
I doubt I'll need to get a secondary focuser such as a JMI."
"Here's one of Saturn. I used the focuser on Aldebaran, slewed to
Saturn, and popped in the MX7C. Like the Jupiter pics, this one is
not a composite (look, ma, no stacking!) and very little processing
was done." -Rob Bensko
The Series III gives you pinpoint focusing on planetary and deep-sky
objects in only seconds and is easy to use.
If you have any model Starlight, S.B.I.G., or other ccd (or even 35mm)
camera, you owe it to yourself to find out how to increase your
productivity and fun at the same time. Visit our website today for
