The digital revolution has finally caught up with SLR cameras!
These are getting better and more economical each day. Both the
Nikon and EOS families do fantastic jobs in astrophotography.
Here's what Bill May had to say about the Series IV he upgraded
to from his Series II 'Stiletto' :
"Just wanted to let you know that I received the Stiletto IV upgrade
and it looks like there are a number of nice improvements. I had a
chance to try it last Friday night and it worked very well. I took
the liberty of attaching an M13 image that I took with it. I noticed
that you still have the old M13 photo of mine on your website. I
thought that this image might be a nice replacement for it since it
shows off what the focuser can do much better. This is a set of 40
stacked 1 minute exposures (unguided) taken with the Canon 10D on a
C8 SCT." (see picture below)
So, if you have a Canon or Nikon 35mm digital camera with interchangeable lenses, you should also know that our Series IV 'Stiletto'focusers work wonderfully with them!
Since the Canon D series uses standard EOS lenses, our Series IV
35mm Autofocus for EOS will match your camera perfectly. And for
owners of the Nikon D series and compatibles, our regular Series IV
'Stiletto'for 35mm Nikon cameras fits the bill.
Series IV Professional, Deluxe, or Standard models are available
for any of the above cameras. The Series IV can be used for both
deep-sky and eyepiece projection photography and uses the very same
attachment adapters that you use now. Nothing special is needed
to get perfect focus.
