You've already read my ads and know how biased I am about the Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser. But here are some newsgroup comments from some of your colleagues:

"Trust me everything Richard says about these devices is true.
You CANNOT take an out-of-focus picture with this device. In the
year+ that I have owned it I have not taken ONE SINGLE out of focus
photo. When you are lucky to get 3 or 4 shots a night do you really
want them to turn out fuzzy?" - Jim Lacey

"The best choice for CCD focusing is to get a Stellar Technologies
Stilleto focuser specially calibrated for your camera. It achieves
perfect focus each and every time in about 5 seconds." - Lee Watkins

"Best bet in my opinion is to get a knife edge focusing device from Stellar Technologies. Anything else is really going to be hit or miss and who wants to waste hours in the cold just to find out you're out of focus?" - Alan Jones

"I have both cameras and have an OM #1-8 viewscreen which is much
brighter than the normal one. I also have a varimagni-finder (right
angle magnifier attachment). It is still difficult to focus. I also
have a Stiletto focuser from STI, it works great and is easier to use than the camera/viewscreen/varimagni-finder. I like it." - Ron Columbo

"I must say, the focuser worked like a charm, the first time. I
hooked it up,saw the lines, made them disappear as I focused,
replaced it with the camera, and shot the photo. It worked just like
that. I just got the photo back from the developer, and all the stars
are completely in focus (they are still jiggly lines due to the mount,
but one big problem down... ) -Elliot Brooks (Holland)

But don't rely on this Internet gossip! Trust the result of
your own photos! The Series IV 'Stiletto' is available for all 35mm, CCD, and medium format cameras and comes with a 30-day Clear Sky guarantee. Visit our website today for all of the details.

Clear Skies!
