You won't see this one on WWE, TNA, or ECW for sure: Razor Ramone
and Jack the Snake throwing astrophotos at each other. But it
would be a great match!

So, I was the first to be surprised when I received before and
after pictures of M13 taken by a wrestling fan with his Starlight MX5C
camera taken back-to-back on the same night (see below).

I would have thought that software development would have surpassed
analog approaches to focusing by now. But guess what?! No matter
how hard programmers try, it's difficult to beat knife-edge focusing.

While softwares are pretty quick, this doesn't do much good at
2 a.m. when you have to wrestle with them for a half hour to get
a picture right - if you're lucky. And just one measily picture after
spending an hour driving, an hour to set up, and an hour to cool down
the equipment. There oughta at least be a referee.

And that's why I developed a Series IV 'Stiletto' model specifically
for CCD fans when they started to throw bottles into the ring.
My own philosophy is that if I cannot get a perfect pin within 30
seconds with film or ccd, something is terribly wrong in the astro
sport world.

And so, if you own an S.B.I.G., Starlight XPress, or any other fine
ccd camera, you really should check out the Series IV for yourself.
Whether you are shooting at f/10 or at f/3.3, or have adapters coming
out of your cauliflower ears, we have a model that will work with

Visit our website today for all of the details on the Series IV, and
give me a call if you have any questions.

And what ever happened to Rowdy Roddy Piper anyways?

Clear Skies!
