The success of the new line of Series III 'Stiletto' focusers
has even surprised me - and I make them!
I knew I was on the right track making an easy to use knife-edge astrofocuser that worked with both 35mm and CCD cameras, but really had no idea so many CCD camera users were struggling with focusing.
Then again, I probably should have just looked at my own experience for a clue: while PictorView and MaxIm worked fine for focusing
after the initial learning curves, I still found myself spending a
LOT of time going back and forth between screen shots trying to find
that perfect focus for my CCD. When I think about it now, I was
probably spending up to 15 minutes or more trying to get the focus
right on target. Focusing was getting to be like a game - get the
focus and win a picture! I thought this whole process was pretty
ridiculous and a waste of time.
With the Series III 'Stiletto' you can be in perfect focus
in a matter of seconds, not minutes. And there is no lingering doubt
about whether you have minimized the pixel image size or not, or
whether you need to take another test shot. The same goes for 35mm
So, if you have a Meade, SBIG, Starlight xPress, Apogee or other fine
CCD camera system, you just might be interested in saving some time
yourself. And if you have a Nikon, Olympus or other nice 35mm camera,
the rewards for perfect focus can be just as great.
