        Comments about Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Masks:

        I mistakenly bought the mask for a 11" SCT telescope instead of one for a 10" newtonian. Decided to try it out anyway and was very impressed. I was surprised to see how precisely it helped in focusing, virtually left no guess work at all. I'm going to keep the wrong one it worked so well, just had to make something to keep it from sliding off my scope. Took 5 minutes max.

          Work great even though I mistakenly bought the wrong mask, 11" sct instead of one built for a 11" newtonian. Was surprised at how precise it really was. In fact I'm not going to return it for the right one it worked so well.

            Comments about Farpoint Bahtinov Focus Masks:

            For astrophotography (AP) you must have perfect focus or your image will stink. I have found no other way to get perfect focus than the Bahtinov mask. The way it works is extremely simple. Search YouTube to see how they work.

            You can build your own mask simply by using a picture of one so you don't want to pay much for someone else to do it for you. This one is the best price in the U.S.

            This mask is adjustable to fit a range of sizes. It is easy to hang on the dew shield. I would like it to have a blinking light or a built in timer (say 5 minutes) so it would beep when the time is up. I have forgotten to remove my mask a few times and begun taking multiple 10 minute exposures, only to have to start all over once I realized my mistake.
