Astronomy Celts in the forests of England pray to a pagan god 6 times at the 6th hour of the 6th day of each month to call up the Great Focusing Spirit. In other parts of the world, devotees of astrophotography traditionally mutter similar words to higher or lower powers and cross their fingers during exposures hoping to avoid wasted time and energy on blurry astrophotos.
Here in the U.S. we are blessed by a few technomoney pagans who believe a direct relationship exists between dollars spent on astrogear and the quality of astrophotos they get. But investing thousands of dollars in a new telescope and camera, or summoning the spirits, is no guarantee of success. The solution is totally technical, not magical, and it can be found with experience and a Series IV 'Stiletto' focuser.
Series IV focusers are available for all 35mm and CCD cameras. Using precision ronchi knife-edge focusing techniques, perfect focus is attained in a matter of seconds - each and every time. Plus, the Series IV is a completely modular design. It allows you to change from one type of camera to any other on the fly. You simply add different mounts to the Series IV 'Stiletto' body as you like. You don't have to invest in a whole new focuser just because you changed cameras.
