Sterrar Technologies Inc focuser

Recommended Posts

Before getting my QHY8 I was using my canon 20D as my camera and got a Stellar technologies Inc. Stilletto focusing aid for it. Anyone interested in this device? its made for each camera out there and this one is for the 20D model. cost a few hunderd dollars new, but willing to part with it for $50.00 as I really don't use it now.

cheers

G'day Tone,

I have one of these to. Not sure how you focus the QHY, but you can adjust the stilleto to match your QHY. Just need to borrow a depth guage from someone and match the focal plane.

Didn't know you could do that... I've been focusing with Nebulosity's fien focus routine, and it seems to work OK as I have everything hooked up ready to image as soon as I get crititcal focus. I ususally return to the fine focus tool again after I've acquired my target just for a "belt and suspenders" approach to gettign it right. For so many years, my images suffered from the focus being off... I didn't realize that "infinity" wasn't good enough! Lots to learn here.... thanks for the suggestion, and if anyone else wants to "adapt" this gadget to fit their DSLR, maybe have a go at it.

cheers
