I don't know about the rest of you, but I have some pretty wild
dreams myself - most of which have little to do with astrophotography, and more to do with Dr. Beverly Crusher in the holodeck. But there are others who are finding that the Series IV 'Stiletto' does the trick for them. Here's what Bruce in South Africa had to say:
"It's been almost a year since I started using my Stiletto - results
have been beyond my wildest dreams (see the attached image of Omega
Centauri as an example). This was taken at f/10 on Kodak NC400 using
my LX200/12 and a 40 minute exposure."
Bruce is only one of a bunch of people on several continents who have
been tickled with the results they get from focusing with a Stiletto.
In Bruce's case, he used it with an Olympus OM. But keep in mind Series IV models are available for all 35mm and CCD cameras, even the new digital 35mm DSLRs. Each Series IV is individually calibrated down to .001mm to match your specific camera. You simply attach the Series IV to your regular t-ring, focus, and replace it with your camera to take the picture. It's that easy. Twenty seconds easy. Even if you are almost as blind as a bat, the Series IV works perfectly every time. Swap-swap-done!
Still, I don't know about that 'wildest dream' claim. I guess a lot
of people really grasp for meaning when there are no good cable re-runs around. On the other hand, if you are one of those who really do want to get pinpoint perfect astrophotos the easy way after investing all that time setting up, do check out the Series IV 'Stiletto' on our website today.
It's performance is money-back guaranteed. The only regret you will have was that you hadn't found it sooner. And my only regret will still be that I was never good-looking or talented enough to make it onto StarTrek TNG even as #2.
