Okay, found my OM-1 and dusted it off. Now, and this might sound silly, what is a stiletto focuser??


Cheers,

Well done!! I love the details of the "arms" that swing off of this nebula. Gives a nice "3D" look.. The color is also striking!!

A Stiletto Focuser is a small device to aid in focusing. Google "STI STILETTO" for details.


PS: Thanks for all the great comments!
