So, Friday was the first day I put my mother-in-law Dotty to work answering the phone. This she found quite interesting and a change of pace from watching the Soap channel. After a few dry-runs as a pseudo-caller, I decided to let her loose on the astronomy world.
The first call was from Robert in New Jersey wanting a Series IV 'Stiletto' for his new Canon 300D EOS. I was quite pleased with how she greeted him and carefully wrote down the camera brand. But then, instead of asking which Stiletto model he wanted (Standard, Deluxe, or Pro Edition), she asked him what size he needed. ??? It seems that she became a little confused. Her prior sales experience was working in the lingerie department at Lytton's in Chicago 40 years ago where asking a brassiere cup size came quite naturally. But everything turned out fine in the end. Robert ordered the Deluxe model after some intervention on my part, and I gave Dotty a quick refresher on Series IV basics. No one said this was going to be easy.
But if nothing else, astrophotography has taught me to be patient - unless there is an obvious solution to speed things up after midnight. And it was this mental butt kick that resulted in development of the Series IV 'Stiletto' in the first place. It does save a humongous amount of time getting perfect focus.
Instead of going through the hardware/software dance setting up to focus a DSLR, the Series IV gets you in and out lickety-split (an expression my Uncle Ed never did quantify) without having to mess with cables and connections. And the Series IV beats the software for precision each and every time.
If you own a EOS, Nikon, or any other 35mm DSLR, you will be simply amazed at how easy the Series IV makes focusing. No more squinting at tiny pixels of Vega to try to get it right or relying on blind luck. And we guarantee Series IV performance in writing. So, visit our website or give us a call for more information about the Series IV 'Stiletto'.
In the meantime, I'm thinking about renaming our models to A,B, and C.
