I became a great believer in post-Christmas depression back in
January, 1997 when I managed to blow 12 rolls of PPF film trying
to take one decent astrophoto. Of M42 no less.

I was by no means a rank beginner, but discovered that I had
managed to go half-blind somewhere in life. It was diagnosed as
acute Lady Godiva syndrome: failing eyesight brought about from
squinting at what one should not be squinting at. In my case, they
were stars through a 35mm viewfinder.

But from evil, good usually evolves. The letdown motivated me
to try all sorts of different focusing methods. After a few months,
I found that Hartmann masks, parfocal eyepieces, magnifiers, etc.,
still resulted in squint, blur, and profanity. And that is when
I started development of what is now the Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser.

You can read more about the history of its development at our website.
For now, I'll just tell you that you can be half-blind and still
reach perfect focus for your 35mm, CCD, or Medium Format camera in
only seconds. The Series IV 'Stiletto' really is the best around.
It is guaranteed to save you both time and money if you are serious
about astrophotography. And it will do away with the squint, click,
blur phenomena forever.

Visit our website to learn more. Series IV models are available for
just about any camera used for astrophotography. Yours too.

Clear Skies!
